Namibian Squad trains with Cobham mini’s
Cobham Minis and their coaches were delighted to welcome four members of the Namibian Rugby World Cup squad to training last Sunday. Flanker, Rohan Kitshoff, Fly Half, Theuns Kotze and Props Johannes Redelinghuys and Jaco Engels, together with three of their Coaches, Henry Kemp, John Williams and Wayne Damon helped gave the Cobham Minis and their parents a morning to remember.
Namibia have been training at Cobham RFC in the build up to to their first ever game against the All Blacks.
Namibian Team Manager Wessel Kotzè said: “We were completely overwhelmed by the generosity and hospitality of Cobham RFC. The facilities at this club are world class and we were privileged to be able to use Cobham RFC as our base for our preparations for the match against New Zealand. On behalf of the Namibian Rugby Union I wish to express our sincere gratitude to Cobham RFC for their support.“
“We were very impressed by the club’s commitment to the development of the game and the huge turn-out at their mini-rugby day should be a blue print for many clubs and unions like ourselves as to how to go about getting the youth involved with the game. Members of the team and management who were at the mini rugby day had a great time and were reminded again how important it was looking after rugby at grassroots level.“
