Team Building

The former Welsh international has been working as Head Coach since June 2015 to the Namibia Rugby Union but will now take on a much more hands-on coaching role at Rugby World Cup 2015 and beyond.

2015 Rugby World Cup

Namibia Rugby Union's Phil Davies coaching the Namibia national team during training as they prepare for their opening match against the All Blacks for this year's 2015 Rugby World Cup in London.

Head Coach, Phil Davies

In a short period of time, Phil Davies has built a stronger national team. One of the first things he did was to get his side in shape. He has created a high-performance centre at the national stadium in the UK to train his new team.

The result? Russia, Kenya and Zimbabwe have all been defeated in the past couple of months. And in the long term, Davies has big ideas. He drives for hours to watch club games in tiny towns, and wants to forge stronger links with the relatively strong school rugby scene.

  • “Phil and I have worked together with the Llanelli Scarlets from 2006-2008. Phil did an excellent job and is one of the most highly acclaimed and innovative Directors of rugby I have had the pleasure of working with. He has fantastic man management skills and a vast knowledge of professional rugby coaching. He is meticulous and very diligent in his preparation. Phil is an individual who will thrive in any pressure situation and I would like to have the pleasure of working along side him if the position arose”

  • “Phil Davies has been appointed Technical Advisor to the Namibia National Rugby Team in October 2014 and Head Coach in June 2015 . His relationship with players and management is outstanding and he assisted greatly to ensure a good team culture within the team. His squad management and team selection was delivered superbly, which is a key element to the success in any team sport. Phil give a lot of attention and detail to processes and systems. Phil’s approach to include the board of the NRU as well as the executive in his coaching philosophy and team selection portrays a message of transparency and inclusiveness. Because of his approach to coaching, he earns respect of those he works with easily.”


    Sybrand A. de Beer
    CEO Namibia Rugby Union
  • Namibia Rugby has had many exceptionally able head coaches and I believe we have found another who stands out even in this distinguished company, Phil Davies. I say this with considerable certainty, based on my close association with Phil Davies in my capacity as General Manager Rugby of Namibian Rugby. Phil’s impact and leadership on Namibia Rugby has been unparalleled and especially his technical knowledge on the game was highly appreciated. Phil’s impact has also impacted far beyond our national team, his involvement and attendance at club games has helped identify many future stars that will, when incorporated into the system, represent Namibia in the not to distant future. He has been a peerless ambassador for the Namibian Rugby Union and has won our team respect from fellow Rugby Nations, Coaches and players by the way we approach and play the game. He has played a key role in our High Performance approach to the game as well as helped in delivering a clear, objective and concise selection policy.
