The Welwitschias dominated proceedings from start to finish as they built on their fine form throughout the Rugby Africa Championships.
The tournament took place in Aix-en-Province in the south of France and played host to several African nations.
For the losing finalists Kenya, their World Cup dream isn’t over yet as they can still qualify via the final qualification tournament.
The tournament pits the losing finalists from Africa, Asia/Pacific, The Americas and Europe in a round robin series in November.
With qualification now in the bag for Namibia they will need to prepare for the brutal prospect of facing three times champions New Zealand, hosts France and Italy in pool A.
The good news however is that they close out their campaign against fellow tier 2 side Uruguay in what will be their best chance of victory.
