LISTEN DEC 12, 2019

Dear Friends of Ghana Rugby
May 2020 Be A Passionately Winning Year
We are at the end of another challenging year for Ghana Rugby, and you surely experienced the same.

Despite all the challenges Ghana Rugby had a remarkably eventful and memorable year.

  • Our U20 youngsters played for the first time in a Rugby Africa tournament and despite the challenges to field a squad, we look forward to the growth in this department of our Union,
  • Our Ghana Women’s Sevens Eagles surprised everybody by winning the Challenge Trophy in Tunisia in their first-ever tournament,
  • The Men’s Sevens Eagles emulated the ladies’ performance by beating Morocco in a brilliant display of sevens rugby, and
  • On 23 November the Ghana Men’s Fifteens Eagles avoided elimination from the new Rugby Africa Cup by beating Botswana in Ghana.

We know that the achievements of 2019 also lay the foundation for a much more challenging 2020 both on-and-off the field.

May we thank you for your participation in our quest to grow and to fulfil our mission to grow character in Ghana up to now. Please continue being a “Friend of Ghana Rugby” in 2020.

May you be blessed and protected and may peace and happiness be part of your 2020.

Yours truly
Herbert Mensah
President: Ghana Rugby Football Union (GRFU)
