South Africa vs Namibia live stream: how to watch today’s Rugby World Cup 2019 match from anywhere….. Opening games don’t come much tougher than having to face New Zealand, and while South Africa acquitted themselves well against the All Blacks in their first 2019 Rugby World Cup match, the Springboks came up short.
Conversely, their second match couldn’t be much kinder, with a match-up against likely World Cup whipping boys Namibia.
Will the Springboks dish out a whitewash? Watch the action as it happens with our South Africa vs Namibia live stream guide.
Namibia will be hoping to exorcise the ghosts of losing 87-0 during their last meeting with South Africa which came in the 2011 World Cup.
While the Namibians will be pleased to have notched up 22 points against Italy in the first match, that game also illustrated just how brittle their defence is.
Having shipped 47 points against the Azzurri, one worries for them as they prepare to face a South African side that will be intent on re-establishing their position as one of the tournament favourites.
You can watch all the action from pretty much anywhere on Earth by following our Rugby World Cup South Africa vs Namibia live stream guide below.
