Captain Davis Chenge goes over for Kenya

Kenya and Namibia will clash on Saturday for a place in the 2019 Rugby World Cup after the Kenyans defeated Tunisia 67-0 on Saturday.

Namibia are four points ahead of Kenya with a superior points difference heading into the decisive match in Windhoek (KO 16:00 local time) and a bonus point will be enough to claim the Rugby Africa Gold Cup title and a place in Pool B at Japan 2019 alongside New Zealand, South Africa, Italy and the repechage winner.

The loser on Saturday will remain in Rugby World Cup 2019 contention, but will need to win November’s repechage in Marseille where they will meet Canada, Hong Kong and Germany.
