Regular participants of the rugby world championships
Having originally played in the Currie Cup in South West Africa, Namibia became a rugby union nation in its own right after the country declared independence in 1990. A year later they impressively defeated both Italy and Ireland in home series games, and won all of their ten test matches, including five against Zimbabwe. They first made it to the rugby world championship in 1999 where they gave favourites France an early scare, and alongside South Africa Rugby, they went on to represent the African continent at the contest throughout the next two decades. Nicknamed both the Welwitschias and Biltongboere, Namibia won their first major piece of silverware in 2010 when they lifted the Nations Cup thanks to wins over Scotland, Georgia and Romania Rugby. Five years later they were the only international side invited to compete in South Africa's premier domestic rugby union competition where they beat the Limpopo Blue Bulls, and in 2018 they recorded their highest-ever win with a 118-0 defeat of Tunisia at their Windhoek home.

A newly-improved stadium
The Namibian rugby team play their home games at the Hage Geingob Rugby Stadium in the capital city of Windhoek. Named after the President of Namibia, the 10,000-seater venue also hosts several major domestic finals throughout the season, and was given a major upgrade in 2018. Fellow African nations, Tunisia and Kenya have been the most frequent visitors to the stadium over the years, both taking on the Namibians over ten times each, while other regulars include Morocco, Portugal and Romania. Notable players to have pulled on the blue jersey include Eugene Jantjies, Chrysander Botha and Tinus du Plessis, all of whom have each earned over half a century of caps, record points scorer Theuns Kotze and wing Gerhard Mans, who captained the team for its first four years as an official rugby union nation.
