2007 – Group Stages
Ireland 32 – Namibia 17
Namibia have have yet to win a game at any of the four World Cups. The one game where they came the closest was against Ireland in 2007. Played in Bordeaux, the game had 5 Irish tries from O’Driscoll, Trimble, Easterby, Flannery and one penalty try, with two conversions and a penalty from O’Gara. The Namibian team scored via 2 tries from Nieuwenhuis and Van Zyl, (no relation to this Van Zyl as far as we know) along with 2 conversions and a penalty from Wessels.
Also found these these two short videos, that capture in a rough and ready way, the travels of Irish fans on the way to the game, into the stadium and afterwards. Safe to say, a good time was had by all.
