The 2015/2016 Ghana Rugby Club Championship league took a break for the Christmas holidays after an outstanding match between Conquerors RFC and Dansoman Hurricanes Rugby Club on Saturday at the Accra Stadium.

Conquerors, a new club that joined the GRCC this season, defeated Hurricanes, a club that has been in the league for the past seasons, in a margin of 27- 3.

According to Abdul Rahman Salisu, captain of Conquerors, the Hurricanes gave them a tougher game than they had expected; but the team was able to win due to the tactical play that got the opponent frustrated.

The club is yet to play the defending champions Cosmos Buffaloes, which happens to be the most awaited game by many Rugby fans in the season.

Other matches that were played on the day witnessed Cape Coast based Griffons RFC having their first win by beating Accra Sharks 52-0 while the match between Cosmos Buffaloes RFC and UCC Spartans RFC ended 72-0 in favor of the defending champions.

The semi finals would be played between the teams ending first and fourth on the log with the second match being between teams who end second and third.

Kids and women were involved in the Rugby development agenda and had their training session and match between 9am and 10am with the ladies 7's match between 10am and 10:30am, boys 7's match between 10:30am and 11am, and a 2nd division men's 7's match between 11am and 11:30am.

The second leg of the GRCC league will resume in January 2016.
