NAMIBIA's national rugby team will play two test matches against Uruguay next month.
According to a Namibia Rugby Union press release, the tests will take place in Windhoek on 18 and 25 November, and will be the last matches before the World Cup qualifiers start in June next year.
Uruguay will provide strong opposition for Namibia, following some impressive performances this year, while they have also moved ahead of Namibia on the international rankings.
Uruguay and Namibia did meet at junior level though this year, when Uruguay also hosted the World Rugby u20 Trophy in September. The two nations played off for the bronze medal and Uruguay comfortably won the match 34-12.
With the World Cup qualifiers looming, the two-test series should be keenly contested and will give numerous Namibian players a chance to stake their claim in the national squad.
