Namibia makes 7 changes for RWC opener versus Fiji

Namibia coach Johan Diergaardt has made seven player changes for his team's opening World Cup match against Fiji on Saturday from the lineup which lost to Georgia in the European Nations Cup at Bucharest in June.
Saracens flanker Jacques Burger, one of the few fulltime professionals in the Namibian squad, has the highest profile of the incoming players after having helped the English club to the premiership. He will captain the side for the Pool D match at Rotorua International Stadium.
Wingers Danie Dames and Conrad Marais, inside center Piet Van Zyl, flyhalf Theuns Kotze, tighthead prop Raoul Larson and hooker Hugo Horn are the other new arrivals. There is one positional change, with Eugene Jantjies shifting from No. 10 to scrumhalf.
