The Simbas remained unchanged from last weekend’s 41-22 win over Zimbabwe in Bulawayo as they face hosts Namibia in Saturday’s Rugby Africa Gold Cup decided at Windhoek’s Hage Geingob Stadium.
Wilson Kopondo captains the squad from second row where he once again partners Simon Muniafu while Oliver Mang’eni once again misses out after work commitments make it challenging for him to link up with the squad in good time.
Speaking at the team hotel in Windhoek on Friday morning, Head Coach Jerome Paarwater said, ” It’s our last game tomorrow against Namibia, it is like a final. It’s going to be a tough game and we will approach it like a final. We don’t have a great record in Namibia and want to put up a good performance this time.”
