Ghana Rugby has a busy international continental programme in 2019 that will see

it compete in at least five Rugby Africa Tournaments.

Taking part in the women’s tournaments will be a first for Ghana Rugby and due to

the very strange situation whereby Rugby Africa has not announced any dates or venues for

the women’s tournaments we don’t want to be caught with our pants down,rdquo; Mensah said.

The Rugby Africa international tournaments that Mensah referred to include the U20

Barthes Cup in May in Uganda against Algeria, Uganda and Zambia, the men’s fifteens Silver

Cup in June against Madagascar, Botswana and Nigeria, the Men’s Sevens Cup probably in

October and the women’s sevens and fifteens tournaments.

In the last of the Pool matches Griffons will face UCC Spartans while Western

Cheetahs will take on the Stallions in Cape Coast on Saturday.

On Sunday Accra will be witness to a crucial match between Conquerors and Accra

Rugby Club while Cosmos Buffalos will take on the Lions.
