Introduction of women’s Rugby league shows success – Mensah

Accra Mr. Herbert Mensah, President and Board Chairman of the Ghana Rugby Football Union (GRFU), has said the introduction of women’s 7s league in the 2017/18 calendar, was the major point of success for his outfit.

The 2017/18 Ghana Rugby Club Championship ended successfully on Sunday, February 4, at the Accra Sports Stadium, with Conquerors Sporting Club winning both men and women divisions.

The Conquerors Ladies won the maiden edition of the Women’s Rugby Club Championship after defeating Hurricane Ladies 22-12 in the women’s 7s.

According to Mr Mensah, the highlight of the season was the introduction of the women’s championship, which for him was successful.

The tournament is a progression from last year. We as the administrators have a job to comply, that is run the league to global standards and for us in a way that develops the game without injury and we see progress.

This year’s level was an improvement on last year. The quality of players has improved and I think for me the most important thing this year is the establishment of the women’s league, Mr Mensah said.

I think it’s a successful season which enables us to prepare for the Bronze Cup, which starts in May in Ghana.

Mr Mensah noted that, the improvement in quality of the play by the participating teams showed that Rugby was really rising in Ghana.
