After an excellent first half, the tuskers failed to hold their nerve as Namibia completed a well deserved 26-14 win in the world series qualifiers earlier today. Defeats in all three games restricted Sri Lanka from qualifying to the next stage.
Yesterday, Sri Lanka suffered huge defeats to Chile and host nation Hong Kong. Today’s performance against Namibia was comparatively better by standards. However, the tournament was a complete disappointment for the Tuskers.
Sri Lanka has early possession of the ball but Namibia scored first to take a seven-point lead. A yellow card offense helped the Tuskers bounce back to level the score at the break.
In the second half, Namibia outsmarted Sri Lanka to lead 19-14. Competitive rugby from the Tuskers kept them in the game but bad luck resulted in favor of Namibia.
The match concluded 14-26 in favor of Namibia.
