Ghana will look towards rugby world champions, South Africa, to develop the game locally, chairperson of the Ghana Rugby Association, Gifty Annan-Myers, has said.

South Africa beat England last Saturday to clinch the World Cup, and the Ghana rugby boss said that the African country's triumph should inspire Ghana to develop its game.

Mrs Annan-Myers said she was committed to drafting South African expertise into Ghana to impart knowledge in technical areas such as coaching to Ghanaians to help in developing the local game.

Ms Anann-Myers returned from the rugby World Cup in France last Monday after attending the Annual General Meeting of the International Rugby Board in the French capital, Paris.

“It is obvious how the game has developed in South Africa, and if we can benefit from their experience, we have to take advantage of it,” Ms Annan-Myers told the Daily Graphic on her arrival.

She said the rest of Africa must be inspired by the success story of the South Africans to strive towards narrowing the gap between them and the world champions to make the game stronger on the continent.

“It is most inspiring that South Africa held high the flag of Africa, and Africa must make the most of this triumph,” the rugby boss said.
