Defending champions of the Ghana Rugby Club Championship (GRCC), Cosmos Buffaloes won their second match by beating Accra Sharks with a huge points difference of 87-6 in the ongoing GRCC League on Sunday 6 December 2015 at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The Buffaloes, who played the game with most of their players being new in the team due to the transfer of 9 key players to other clubs, surprised spectators with quality rugby play.
According to Amuzuloh Salim, manager and coach of Cosmos Buffaloes, the performance of his team on the day was beyond expectation, adding that it was a shocker.
Speaking to the press, Mr. Salim disclosed how the dream of retaining the trophy became shattered as most of the key players were sold to other clubs in order to gain funds for the club.
He said the team’s performance on the day had 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, a member of the Greater Accra Rugby Association (GARA), on behalf of GARA.
