Namibia’s 2019 Rugby World Cup Scrumhalf, Damian Stevens will make his debut tomorrow, Saturday 20 March in the Major League Rugby league in the USA for NOLA Gold Rugby Club.

NOLA Gold signed Stevens through the 2023 Major League Rugby season. The 25-year old scrum-half from Walvis Bay made his Namibia National Team debut for the Welwitschias against Kenya on 8 August 2015 and has since earned 27 caps for his country.

Stevens was a standout performer for Namibia during Rugby World Cup 2019. He started against Italy and New Zealand, scoring a try against the Azzurri and kicking three penalty goals against the All Blacks.
Other Namibian world cup players that are playing in the Major League Rugby league in the USA are Namibian hooker Obert Nortjé in the colours of the Seattle Seawolves, where another Namibian, Kees Lensing, is the head coach, with JP du Plessis also play in the colours of NOLA Gold whilst flyhalf Cliven Loubser will play for the Utah Warriors and Namibian eighth man Adriaan Booysen will again play in the colours of the reigning champions the Houston SaberCats.
