After an emphatic 95-0 win over Senegal last weekend, Namibia hope to maintain their lead in the Rugby Africa Gold Cup when they meet Zimbabwe at the Hage Geingob stadium in Windhoek on Saturday.Namibia’s Welwitschias are leading the six-team competition after two matches on 10 points.

Rugby Africa Gold Cup is made of six best rugby nations in Africa, which are Tunisia, Senegal, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Uganda and Namibia.

Welwitschias Rohan Kitshoff has called on his teammates to move on from their convincing win against Senegal and focus on the tricky encounters against Zimbabwe and Kenya.

After the Saturday clash, Namibia will welcome Kenya next weekend at the same venue.

“It was a good win but we need to rectify some minor details heading into important matches against Zimbabwe and Kenya,” Kitshoff the man of the match against Senegal, said ahead of the Zimbabwe clash.

Kitshoff cautioned that they expect a physical and tough encounter on Saturday.

Kenya who are in second on 7 points host in Nairobi Senegal the fifth placed team with 1 point.

Third placed Uganda on 6 points host Tunisia who are yet to claim a point in Kampala.

Senegalese captain Steeve Sargos has described the heavy defeat to Namibia as a learning curve.

He earlier told Namibian media that the defeat “will go on to help our younger players because Namibia is already at the top level and it was nice competing against them. We hope that this experience would rub off to our younger players and improve on what we have done.”
