• Kenya shock Namibia

    Kenya took a big step towards qualifying for their first-ever World Cup with a 29-22 victory over Namibia in Madagascar.

    Meanwhile, Zimbabwe's World Cup ambitions remain on track after defeating hosts Madagascar 57-22 in front of a capacity crowd in the rugby-mad capital.

    Zimbabwe have not featured at rugby's showcase event since 1991, but were in blistering form against their opponents to steal an early lead in the event standings.

    The winner of the three-round tournament will join New Zealand, Argentina, Tonga and Georgia in Pool C, while the runner-up will face Russia for a place in the repechage final.
