The Welwitschias recorded a heavy defeat against the 2022 Currie Cup Champions, the Pumas on Wednesday night. They lost against them by 43 to 0 in a warm-up game. 

It is anticipated that they will face an even tougher side on Saturday in the Airlink Cup, where they will play against the Pumas' first team.  

The Welwitschias had their first outing of the year in a warm-up game against the South African franchise Pumas, trailing them by 22 points at half time. 

On the day the Welwitschias fielded two full teams to give all the players some needed game time.

The two teams will once again face each other on Saturday in the inaugural Airlink Cup, where both will send out their best players.

The game will be played at the Hage Geingob Stadium at 16:00.
