Three changes for Namibia
September 14, 2007
Namibia have made three changes, one positional, to their starting line-up for Sunday's Pool D Clash with France in Toulouse.
Openside Michael MacKenzie replaces the injured Heino Senekal, who limped off early in Sunday's 32-17 defeat by Ireland.
MacKenzie's call-up results in a back row reshuffle with Jacques Nieuwenhuis moving from blindside to number eight and Jacques Burger shifting in the opposite direction.
At scrum-half, Jurie van Tonder replaces Eugene Jantjies who is forced to settle for a place among the substitutes.
Team: T Losper; R Witbooi, B Langenhoven, P van Zyl, H Bock; E Wessels, J van Tonder; K Lensing (captain), H Horn, J du Toit, W Kazombiaze, N Esterhuize, J Burger, M MacKenzie, J Nieuwenhuis.
Replacements: J Meyer, J Redelinghuys, H Lindvelt, T du Plessis, E Jantjies, L-W Botes, M Africa.
