Welwitschias out to scalp Blue Bulls

The Welwitschias of Namibia will face the Vodacom Blue Bulls in a friendly warm-up match at Hage Geingob Stadium tomorrow at 15h00.

This match serves as a crucial preparation for Namibia ahead of the 2024 Rugby Africa Cup starting on 20 to 28 July at the Mandela National Stadium in Nambole, Kampala.

The Namibians will also play friendly warm up matches against Portugal on 13 July at the same venue.

At last year’s World Cup, Portugal achieved its first draw against Georgia, and also its first-ever win, beating Fiji.  As it stands, Portugal is ranked 16th in the world, whereas Namibia is ranked 22nd.
