Namibia’s Welwitschias got their Vodacom Cup campaign back on track with a great performance against Griquas on Saturday. Although the Welwitschias lost the match 29-27, they gave an inspired display against the defending champions which will give them a lot of confidence for the rest of their campaign.
The Griquas seemed to be heading for a comfortable victory when they streaked into a 17-6 lead by halftime, but a great second half comeback by the home side saw them coming right back into the match.
