Namibia coach Phil Davies is upbeat ahead of the 2018 Africa Gold Cup that gets underway on 16 June. 
The defending champions have qualified for the past five editions of the rugby world cup and while admitting that this year’s tournament will be competitive, Davies reckoned that they have assembled the best side to send them to their sixth successive global showpiece.
“This competition will be Namibia’s toughest World Cup qualifier for the last ten years. Despite the challenge, we are confident because we have a very strong team with the talent, the mindset and the attitude needed to compete in this type of event,”Davies is quoted by Rugby Africa. 
Namibia kicks off her Gold Cup campaign with a home tie against Uganda on Saturday 16 June at the Hage Geinghob stadium in Windhoek.
