Namibia tightened their grip on top spot in the Rugby Africa Gold Cup 2018 as the tournament resumed on Saturday following a four-week break.

The Gold Cup this year doubles as the African qualifying process for Rugby World Cup 2019, and Namibia’s bonus-point 58-28 defeat of Zimbabwe in Bulawayo means they stay in front of second-placed Kenya in the race for the Africa 1 place in Pool B in Japan.

Kenya face Tunisia in Nairobi next weekend and must realistically secure all five points if they are to keep pressure on Namibia in the race for qualification.

Uganda eased their relegation fears as they secured a first victory of the competition, beating Tunisia 67-12 in Kampala.

Uganda's victory earned them just over ninth tenths of a rating point, enough to lift them one place to 36th in the World Rugby Rankings when they update at 12 noon BST on Monday and condemn Tunisia to a three-place fall to 43rd. Namibia's win was worth only seven hundredths so they remain 23rd with Zimbabwe stationary in 45th.

Meanwhile, the Rugby World Cup 2019 trophy tour visits India this week in a trip that will see a number of special activities planned in a nation where rugby is beginning to take off. Follow @rugbyworldcup on twitter, Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date with all the latest news.
