Preview of the Uruguay vs Namibia match

Namibia is gearing up for their final appearance at Rugby World Cup 2023, which will take place at the OL Stadium on Wednesday. They are still on the hunt for their first elusive victory to break their tournament losing streak.

This tournament has been quite challenging for the Welwitschias. So far, they’ve managed to score only 11 points in their three matches against Italy, New Zealand, and France while conceding a total of 219 points. However, as they bid farewell to their fans and competitors in France, they are determined to make a statement.

In preparation for their last match, head coach Allister Coetzee has implemented seven personnel changes in the starting XV compared to their previous game against France. Among these changes, four are in the forward pack, and three are in the back-line. Johan Coetzee and Gerswin Mouton will be the only two players who have started all four matches, while Tjiuee Uanivi will lead the team as captain for the fifth time.

Standing in their path is Uruguay, a team that has given both France and Italy a run for their money in their two previous matches. They nearly upset France in Lille and even held a 17-7 lead against Italy at halftime.

Coach Esteban Meneses has made four changes to his starting XV since their last match, where they faced a 38-17 loss against Italy. Diego Arbelo takes the place of Ignacio Peculo in the front-row, Carlos Deus steps in for Manuel Diana in the back-row, and Bautista Basso replaces Gaston Mieres on the right wing. Additionally, Felipe Arcos Perez is set to make his Rugby World Cup debut, filling in for Tomas Inciarte in the midfield.
