Phil Davies: A man with a long-term plan for Namibian rugby

Welwitschias are on the right path

Phil Davies hopes Namibia’s hard work on and off the field pays off at Rugby World Cup 2015 and beyond.

New Namibia head coach Phil Davies insists the Welwitschias are on the right path to realising their vast potential as a rugby nation despite recent setbacks.

The 51-year-old will link up with the Namibian squad at the end of next week having succeeded Danie Vermeulen, who resigned in the aftermath of a winless World Rugby Nations Cup campaign.

The former Welsh international has been working as a technical advisor to the Namibia Rugby Union since last November but will now take on a much more hands-on coaching role at Rugby World Cup 2015 and beyond.
