The Ghana Rugby Eagles managed to lift the 2018 Rugby Africa Bronze Cup at the Nduom Sports Stadium in Elmina, by beating Mauritius 23 points to 17, nail-biting final.
The win ensured that Ghana Eagles were promoted to the 2019 Rugby Africa Silver Cup – a step closer to the mission of the Union’s President, Mr Herbert Mensah, to take the Ghana Eagles to the global stage of Rugby.
The President of Rugby Africa, Mr Abdelaziz Bougja, sent a congratulatory message to Mensah, in which he said, ‘On behalf of Rugby Africa, please accept my sincere thanks and congratulations for hosting the 2018 edition of the Rugby Africa Bronze Cup in Elmina, Ghana.
‘From the feedback I received, our executive member Mr Zahui as well as all the staff members from Rugby Africa and World Rugby, the match officials, and the visiting teams felt welcome and enjoyed your hospitality.
‘Please pass on my thanks to your team for a well organised and successful tournament. I know how much work is required to deliver a well-run competition and appreciate the efforts of Ghana Rugby Union. It is the second time you are hosting a regional competition on our behalf, and we value your collaboration to grow rugby in Africa and raise our standards.
‘Finally allow me to congratulate your team for their victory, winning the tournament while it was your first participation in the Bronze Cup is a big deal, and I wish you all the best in your future preparations for the Silver Cup 2019.’
