NAIROBI www.airprestoshoessale.com , July 23 (Xinhua) -- Kenya rugby 15s head coach Jerome Paarwater is optimistic that his side can lift the 2017 Rugby Gold Cup on Aug. 5 by beating favourites and title holders, Namibia in Windhoek.
The South African led his team popularly known as Simbas (Lions) to a well-earned but unspectacular 42-21 victory over Zimbabwe's Sables in Bulawayo to keep their hopes of being crowned continental champions for the first time since 2013 alive.
Namibia remain top of the Gold Cup group on 20 points, two ahead of the Kenyans after coming through unscathed in Kampala when they ran out 48-24 winners to set a winner takes all clash on Aug. 5 in Windhoek on the final day of the 2017 top continental 15s showdown.
But the Simbas are quietly confident of spoiling the part since after opening their campaign on Jun. 24 with a morale-sapping 33-33 draw against Uganda; they have stormed to victories against Tunisia (100-10July 8) and Senegal 45-25 (July 15) at the RFUEA grounds in Nairobi before the away victory over the Sables on Saturday.
"The game was about patience and the guys stuck to their guns. We didn' t play much rugby in our 22, they forced the play and we struggled to keep them in their half but we hit them when it matter most.
"Today was not about playing extensive and funny rugby, it was just to play winning rugby that is sometimes ugly but it was a good game," the pleased South African Simbas boss Paarwater told Kenya Rugby Union media after the game.
"There were many positives Nike Presto Shoes Sale , the one negative is I was not happy with the one on one tackles but I can take the result at the moment," Paarwater added.
Back row Justin Newman, who was one of the try scorers for the table toppers, said Namibia needed to win the match to avoid unnecessary pressure in the Gold Cup title decider next weekend.
"We play Kenya next which is one of the top sides in the continent. Victory today (Saturday) sets up good atmosphere before the final," Newman said ahead of the winner-takes-it-all meeting with the Simbas.
The Cranes notched three tries, three conversions and a penalty as Namibia got seven five-pointers Nike Air Presto Sale , a penalty and five conversions to round their fifth straight victory on the bounce.

TOKYO, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- The Nikkei stock index lost 1.06 percent Thursday as investor sentiment was soured by a weak lead from Wall Street overnight as the global oil glut continues and as the U.S. Federal Reserve failed to define its planned interest rate hike, a move seen as definitively signaling the world's largest economy is in good health.
The Nikkei 225 dropped 189.51 points to finish at 17,606.22, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares fell 1. 14 percent, or 16.34 points Nike Presto Sale , to end the day at 1,413.58.
Local analysts here said that despite the U.S. Federal Reserve saying in a statement that the U.S. economy was expanding "at a solid pace" and citing a boost in employment, the Fed reiterated its stance that it would be "patient" in when it would raise interest rates, a sign that investors took as a negative, as hopes were for a clearer indication of when the Fed plans to raise its benchmark borrowing costs from zero.
The Fed did say, however Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Low Black Sale , it would take into account economies in Europe and Asia when deciding on a timeline for its rate hike, with analysts suggesting that sluggish economies in Asia and inflation issues, coupled with jitters over the health of the eurozone, following Greece's recent geopolitical shift to rewrite its austerity measures, would factor into the Fed's duration of being "patient" henceforth.
"The risks surrounding international developments that the Fed mentions are things like a global economic slowdown or lower inflation as represented by cheaper oil, and geopolitical risks triggered by the fall in oil prices Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Low White Sale ," said Mitsushige Akino, an executive officer at Ichiyoshi Asset Management Co.
As the oil glut continues, with the biggest global distributor Saudi Arabia maintaining recently it has no plans to alter its level of output as U.S. inventories increase, prices for crude fell below 45 U.S. dollars a barrel Thursday, hitting a near six- year low.
In twine with a circumspect reaction to the Fed's statement, economic uncertainty in the eurozone Men's Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Low Grey Sale , a continuing slump in global oil prices, and some disappointing earnings reports here, investors' moves were guarded today, brokers said.
Data showing that retail sales in Japan retreated in December last year by 0.3 percent, marking the third successive month of decline, also did little to inspire investor confidence Thursday Nike Air Force 1 Low White Sale , with concerns renewed that consumers have yet to fully convalesce from a sales tax hike in last April from 5 to 8 percent, analysts said.
Stocks found traction or lost ground on earnings reports, with budget carrier Skymark plummeting 25 percent to 237 yen, following a day of being largely untreated, as the stock will be delisted from the Tokyo Stock Exchange on March 1, following the company filing for bankruptcy protection.
Skymark had liabilities totaling 71.09 billion yen (603.6 million U.S. dollars) when it filed for bankruptcy and its Chief Executive Officer Shinichi Nishikubo stepped down and was replaced by Masakazu Arimori Nike Air Force 1 Low 07 LV8 Grey Sale , a board member, th
