A Veritable Score-Fest for the 2018 U20 Junior Barthes Trophy

Namibia is qualified for the U-20 World Cup to be held in Bucharest from 28th August to 9th September 2018

CAPE TOWN, South Africa, April 10, 2018/APO Group/ --

The African Under-20 Rugby Championship took place from March 28th to 31st, 2018. The competition was split into two groups (the North played in Tunisia and South in Namibia) competing at a distance for the African championship title.

More than 394 points and 53 tries were scored in 8 matches.

  • Namibia emerged victorious from the South group after a match of exceptional intensity against Kenya.
  • Tunisia won the final of the North group, a match full of suspense right up to the final whistle with a dramatic drop goal by the number 10 m, Dhia Ben Dhied, in the second minute of extra time.

The video of the extra time can be seen at the following link: https://youtu.be/hjhySaXjny4

Namibia was the overall winner of the tournament with a higher goal-average. Rugby Africa (www.RugbyAfrique.com) will not be organising a final between the winners of the two groups.
