South Africa vs Namibia LIVE: Get scores and updates from the 2019 Rugby World Cup here! The Springboks and Namibia contest an African derby at the 2019 Rugby World Cup on Saturday. Catch the action live right here. South Africa insisted they hadn’t set themselves a points target as they get ready to dismantle lowly Namibia at the Rugby World Cup – even with a dramatically altered team.
Scorelines of 87-0 last time they met in 2011, and Australia’s record 142-0 shellacking of Namibia in 2003 mean the Springboks can approach the game with confidence bordering on nonchalance.
Coach Rassie Erasmus has even picked hooker Schalk Brits at No 8 in a team that features no fewer than 13 changes from last week’s 23-13 Pool B defeat by New Zealand.
