Kenya Simbas coach reveals reason behind Namibia dominance in Africa

Namibia have dominated the fixture against Kenya Simbas winning eight of the last 10 meetings and head coach Ian Snook believes what the side has invested more in rugby compared to other Africa countries.
The Simbas fine run in the Africa Gold Cup was halted in Windhoek as they went down 53-28 in final match of the competition played last Saturday.
The loss means that Kenya will head to Repechage tournament in France where a win will earn them a place in the 2019 World Cup in Japan.
Snook says Namibia have had more funding, good infrastructure and have been building their current team for the past four years, hence making them stronger.
“Namibia get more funding, they have more infrastructure and they have planned for the last four years. They have a long-term plan and they have their players in the South African leagues. There is a whole heap of issues that separates us,” he said.
Kenya’s last win against Namibia in June 2014.
