The Portugal national rugby union team is the rugby union side representing Portugal at international level. They are rated as a performance team in the new IRB four-band classification system, the second highest. Portugal had their first match in 1935 and now compete in the European Nations Cup and occasionally in the IRB Nations Cup. The team as well as all rugby union in Portugal is administered by the Federação Portuguesa de Rugby. Portugal qualified for their first Rugby World Cup in 2007 where they were grouped in Pool C along with New Zealand, Italy, Romania and Scotland. They are nicknamed Os Lobos, Portuguese for “The Wolves”.
Portugal have experienced unprecedented success in recent years. They have qualified to the World Cup held in France and although they lost all their matches they managed to score one try in all their games and led the score against Romania until the late minutes. Portugal were the surprise winners of the 2003–04 European Nations Cup and have continued to record impressive results, though they could only finish third in the following event. The IRB Sevens World Series circuit has allowed the Portuguese players to demonstrate their competence to the wider rugby world and consequently improve their game. In 2006–07 Portugal competed at every IRB sevens event for the first time.
The Namibian rugby union team, nicknamed the Welwitschias or Biltongboere, is a professional national rugby team. They are a tier-three nation in the International Rugby Board (IRB) tier system, and have participated in four Rugby World Cup competitions since their first appearance in 1999. They are governed by the Namibia Rugby Union.
Namibia has been playing international rugby since the early 1900s. As well as having competed at the World Cup, Namibia annually competes in the Africa Cup. Until independence, players for Namibia were also eligible to represent South Africa, with Namibian-born Springboks including Jan Ellis and, more recently, Percy Montgomery. As of 29 July 2013 they are ranked 23rd in the world.
