They qualify as Africa 1 and take their place in Pool A alongside Rugby World Cup 2023 hosts France, the All Blacks, Italy and Uruguay.

Namibia have faced the All Blacks twice previously. At the 2015 Rugby World Cup they went down 58-14 in London and come up short in Tokyo 71-9 four years later in a game that was marked by a spectacular TJ Perenara try. 

The Welwitschias will begin their RWC 2023 campaign against Italy in Saint-Étienne on 9 September, before playing the All Blacks in Toulouse on 15 September, France in Marseille on 21 September and finishing against Uruguay in Lyon on 27 September.
