Namibia have named a 26-man training squad to prepare for the World Cup qualifiers in South Africa next April. The top four sides from the 12-team event will earn a place at the 2011 World Cup in Asia.

Sean Silver, Pikkie Ya France, Hendrik Marx and Ewald Steenkamp are also tipped to be part of the future.

Squad JB Burger, Raymond van Schoor, ST Ackermann, Stefan Swanepoel, Sarel Burger, Riaan Walters, Louis Burger, Craig Williams, Gerrie Snyman, Bjorn Kotze, Deon Kotze, Tobie Verwey, Nicolaas Scholtz, Bernard Scholtz, Louis Klazinga, Kola Burger, LP van der Westhuizen, Wilbur Slabber, Andrew Louw, Hendrik Marx, Ian van Zyl, Sean Silver, Pikkie Ya France, Ewald Steenkamp, Martin van Niekerk and Pieter Rossouw.
