The defending champions of the Ghana Rugby Club Championship (GRCC), Cosmos Buffaloes RFC, won their second match by beating Accra Sharks RFC 87-6 in the ongoing GRCC League on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The Buffaloes who played largely with new players due to the transfer of 9 key players to other clubs surprised spectators with quality rugby play.
According to Mr. Amuzuloh Salim, manager and coach of Cosmos Buffaloes RFC, the performance of his team on the day was beyond expectation, describing it as a shocker.
Speaking to the press, Mr. Salim noted how the dream of retaining the trophy was almost shattered after selling the team’s key players to other clubs in order to raise funds for the club.
He said the team’s performance has boosted their enthusiasm to fight harder to retain the trophy by the end of the season.
“I’m very excited today because I wasn’t expecting my boys to play spectacularly like this looking at what happened to the club in the past two weeks where most of our key-players were sold to other clubs. I’m grateful to my boys for making me proud because initially I thought it’s impossible to retain the cup but with this performance I’m sure we can win the league again,” he said.
There was a presentation of First Aid boxes to all clubs by Mr. Amuzuloh Salim, who is also a member of the Greater Accra Rugby Association (GARA), on behalf of GARA.
Mr. Amuzuloh Salim hands over a First Aid box to Mr. Mr. Nizar El-Aschkar, owner of Accra Sharks RFC, on behalf of the Greater Accra Rugby Association (GARA) on Day 3 of the ongoing Ghana Rugby Club Championship (GRCC) at the Accra Sports Stadium.
