Four places left for Rugby World cup 2007

Rugby World Cup qualifying for France 2007 has reached 16 out of the required 20 international teams as Namibia takes its place amongst France, Ireland, Argentina and a yet to be decided European qualifier in Pool D.

The African nation will kick off its World Cup campaign against Ireland in Bordeaux on September 9 next year.

Namibia won its second leg fixture against Morocco at home in Windhoek by 27-8 to bring its aggregate score to 52-15 after last month’s 25-7 win away in Casablanca. Morocco may be ruing the sending off of captain Jalil Narjissi after 39 minutes for a dangerous tackle that reduced the visitors to 14 men for entire second half.

In other RWC qualifying news, Georgia downed Portugal 17-3 at home to take first blood in the playoff final for Europe’s third automatic qualifying berth.
