Namibia Rugby World Cup 2011 Betting Guide
Namibia are an emerging Rugby nation in Africa having qualified for every Rugby World Cup since 1999, they have once again booked their place for the 2011 tournament and will be hoping to make their mark on the game. They do face a tough task though having been drawn in Pool D alongside Wales, Fiji, South Africa and Samoa, they will find it tough to register a victory against that kind of opposition with the top two going through to the last eight.
The problem that Namibia will have is that they lack the experience needed to compete at this level with almost all of their squad playing in the domestic league in Namibia, their only real name of note is Jacques Burger who currently plays for Saracens in the Guinness Premiership. Burger will need to lead the team from the front in New Zealand if they are to have any chance of even being competitive during the tournament.
The bookmakers are giving Namibia next no chance of having a good tournament and it is impossible to argue with that assessment, they lack the quality to compete at this level and will struggle to avoid heavy defeats. They are the team that holds the record for the biggest defeat in World Cup history after they lost 142-0 to Australia at the 2003 Rugby World Cup.
