Tonga proved too strong for African representatives Namibia in the ongoing Rugby World Cup after beating them 35-21 in an enthralling encounter played at Sandy Park Stadium, England.

Telusa Veainu, Jack Ram and Latiume Fosita scored a try a piece for Tonga, while Johan Tomp pulled a consolation for Namibia, but was not enough to stop Tonga from securing their first win for a quarter finals spot.

The defeat leaves Namibia languishing at the bottom of pool C without a win in three games.

Namibia are yet to record a victory in World Cup history though scoring three tries in a match for the first time in history.

Meanwhile, the results saw Tonga bounced back from a 17-10 loss to Georgia in their opening game to move second in Pool C ahead of their clash with leaders Argentina on Sunday.
