How to watch or stream Namibia in The Rugby World Cup 2019

Namibia comes into the 2019 Rugby World Cup as the lowest-ranked team in the tournament. They qualified after winning the African Gold Cup against teams such as Zimbabwe, Morrocco and Tunisia.

A big step up in opposition awaits, however. They have been drawn in Pool B alongside rugby giants New Zealand and South Africa, who have won a total of five Webb Ellis trophies between them. Even their game against Italy looks like a tough ask and they could be in for a series of crushing defeats.

Phil Davies is the coach with the unthankable task of turning these rugby minnows into giant-killers, but the fact is he just doesn’t have enough class in terms of playing staff. Namibia has unfortunately gained a reputation as World Cup whipping boys, and the 2019 edition won’t be any different.

The Rugby World Cup 2019 TV Preview – Can Namibia create a shock?

Staggeringly, in 20 attempts, Namibia has never won or drawn a game at a Rugby World Cup. They also have another unwanted record to their name. In 2003 they were dismantled 142-0 by the Wallabies, the biggest losing margin by any team in a World Cup.

Namibia plays in the African Gold Cup for qualification, a tournament that really lacks in terms of standard and competition. It is because of this that they struggle on the big stage, with very few of their players gaining exposure at the highest level of both international and elite club rugby.

Unfortunately, this Rugby World Cup won’t be any different, and the loss of stars such as Jaques Burger to retirement will only add further misery in terms of results. Their players will be happy to get a chance to play on the world’s biggest stage, however, and help grow the game’s popularity back home.

Review of Namibia’s Group Matches

Namibia vs Italy: Italy is coming into this World Cup short on confidence, something Namibia will be hoping to capitalise on. The Azzurri team should have too much experience and eventually topple the Welwitschias.

Namibia vs South Africa: Namibia’s second game is an African derby against neighbours South Africa. The Springboks have far too much class and experience, and a team made up of squad players will still easily beat Namibia by 60 to 80 points.

Namibia vs New Zealand: What happens when the highest-ranked team in the tournament face the lowest? A result that resembles a one-day cricket score. All Blacks will literally demolish Namibia here.

Namibia vs Canada: Namibia will be targeting this game for a win, and hope to end their World Cup on a high. The team from Canada will be doing exactly the same and this promises to be great encounter.
