Namibia is the first team to exit the Rugby World Cup.

Their World Cup programme lasted four pool matches and 16 days.

Wales beat Namibia 81-7 in New Plymouth on Monday night and South Africa won 87-0 last Thursday.

''We played against a good side ... it was tough. It's the end of the World Cup for us,'' said captain Jacques Burger said after Monday's match.
