Rugby Union - World Cup 2011 (in New Zealand) : Wales vs Namibia 12BET 9/26 2:30PM GMT+8

DATE: Monday September 26, 2011
KICK-OFF: 1930 NZDT (1630 AEST)
VENUE: Taranaki Stadium, New Plymouth
HEAD-TO-HEAD: Played 3: Namibia 0, Wales 3.
HEAD-TO-HEAD IN WORLD CUPS: No previous matches.
LAST TIME: June 5, 1993 (Windhoek): Namibia 23-38 Wales.
Johan Diergaardt has not made sweeping changes to the Namibia team even though his core players have been as busy as any in this tournament. He has tinkered with the three-quarter line and front row, but otherwise the side named has a familiar look to it.
  Wales made plenty of changes for this match, which was much as expected. Wales would be pleased that veteran fly-half Stephen Jones is back in action after a lengthy injury lay-off, while Dan Lydiate is recovering from the leg injury he picked up in the early stages of the Samoa game. James Hook, who damaged a shoulder against Samoa and left the field at half-time, is also missing this time.- by
