The national team of Namibia has warned hosts Uganda that they are here for serious business when the two sides clash in a 2016 Rugby Africa Cup Division 1A qualifiers at the Kyadondo ground today.


"We are here for serious business and hope to get a good result away from home," coach Davies Philip Thomas told URN.


The Welsh born coach said although most teams are good playing at home in-front of their supporters, Namibia will not be bothered by that but simply stick to their game plan.


Viviers Casper, one of the star players said they must beat Uganda on Saturday. "We have prepared well and ready to pick a win," he added.


But the Ugandan coach John Duncan said his team will take the game with lots of caution because they know the Namibian team is strong. "Yes we respect them but know the game plan we shall use to counter them," added the South African born coach.


The Uganda Rugby Cranes camped in South Africa last month where they lost 38-13 to Toyota Cheetahs U-21side before stopping Bloemfontein Police 24-22 in the second international friendly match.


After returning from South Africa, the Ugandan team has been preparing seriously. After the game against Namibia, the Ugandan team will traveling to Zimbabwe for a game on July 23rd.
