Namibia kept their faint hopes of reaching the second round of the ICC World Cup qualifying tournament alive when they beat Oman by 119 runs in Krugersdorp on Monday. It was Namibia’s first victory at the competition after they lost their opening three matches against Uganda, Scotland and Canada.
Namibia were sent in to bat and got off to a good start as Raymond van Schoor and Craig Williams put on 48 runs for the first wicket. Van Schoor was first to go for 11 but Williams kept up the tempo with a fine innings before being dismissed for 64 off only 44 balls (1x6, 9x4).
Western Suburbs scored their third successive victory in the MTC Rugby Premier League when they beat Wanderers 20-17 at Suburbs Park on Saturday. The victory put them comfortably on top of the log, but for Wanderers it was their second successive defeat which sees them struggling at the foot of the table.
Suburbs started the game at a high tempo, sucking the energy levels of Wanderers. McGrath van Wyk opened the score with a penalty for Suburbs and minutes later centre Roger Thompson scored a well worked try which Van Wyk converted. Wanderers responded with a penalty.

Isabell Schnoor continued her dominance of the female game in Namibia after winning the Namibian newspaper sponsored Ladies Closed squash final 3-0 against Adri Lambert at the Wanderers on Saturday.
The final was the culmination of a day’s hard play featuring 16 ladies in the competition proper and 8 entrants in the beginners tournament. Once again, as was the case in last month’s Top 16 final, Schnoor came up against Lambert, and unfortunately for Lambert, the result was the same.
