Six players hailing from the Walvis Bay Kudus Rugby Club were selected to be part of the Namibian Sevens Rugby Team.

The team is set to participate in the Rugby Africa Men’s Sevens Tournament that will take place from 13 to 14 October in Tunisia.

The players are Daniel Bock, Ngume Nguaiko, Aurelio Plato, Lloyd Jacobs and Carlton Stevens, as well as Chad Plato who is currently playing for the Blue Bulls in South Africa.

“The road to the Namibian Sevens team selection was a steep, uphill road. We first had to attend the national trails where extraordinary talent and skills were showcased. After that a squad was selected and we then had to attend intense fitness training. It was a tough selection since the sevens squad consisted of great and outstanding players. Since we’re from Walvis Bay we had to train on our own and attend training in Windhoek over the weekends, where our fitness levels were tested as well as to see our progress. It’s a great honour to be able to represent the club as well as the country on such a platform,”Abraham Farmer, coach of the Kudus Rugby Club, said on behalf of the players.
