The FNB Kudus II team will meet the University of Namibia (Unam) II in a Namibia Rugby Union (NRU) reserve league match on Saturday.

The match will kick off at 14:00 at the Unam sports fields in the capital city.

Kudus II announced their team earlier this week.

Lorenco Calaca (loosehead prop), Anthony Hoebeb (hooker), Tjino Tjirare (tighthead prop), Cody Naholo (second row), Lezardo Vos (second row), Casio Shoombe (blindside flanker), Gregory Namaseb (openside flanker), Alexander Jansen (Number 8), Llewellyn Koopman (scrum-half), Ulriato Lawrence (fly-half), Lezardo Williams (left wing), Michael Tjazerua (inside centre), Riwaldo Strauss (outside centre), Daniel Jeneke (right wing), Zane Williams (full back) will represent the coast.

Ashwin Nash, Sidney Hapule, Zaim Allie, Zicco Haihambo, Jivino Polster, Lee-Roy Stevens and Algirnon Kolz will be on the bench.

Herman Grobler, the Kudus coach, said that the team had good preparations in the week.

“We had no injuries after the previous match against Grootfontein. The starting lineup remains unchanged for the semi-final. The team is focused and eager to carry the club's name high and proceed to the finals. It's an honor for the club to play in a semi-final after quite a few years.”

He stated that the team prepared for the match like any other game and are ready to grab the bull by the horns.

“We are ready to give Unam a surprise or two. Last time the team lost 14 - 7 against the students in a very competitive match. The errors counted against us. But for this match, it won’t be the same and the outcome will not be the same. We have learned from our mistakes. We are ready!”

The finals for both the Premier and Reserve leagues are slated for 31 October 2021.
