Ghana names 12-Man squad for Africa Cup 7s

Ghana Rugby President Herbert Mensah has announced the Ghana Rugby Men’s Sevens squad that will go to Tunisia to compete in the 2018 Rugby Africa Men’s Sevens Tournament in Tunisia on 13 and 14 October 2018.
He says coming up with the final squad was a tall order as all the players in camp impressed.
“The decision was not an easy one with so many players who worked incredibly hard and who could probably all have represented Ghana. At the end of the day we had to choose and the squad of twelve on whose shoulders the responsibility now lies to go and make Ghana and all Ghanaians proud, ” he said.

The  Eagles will depart for Tunisia on 6 October 2018 with Royal Air Maroc and will camp in Tunis till the 11th of October when they will join the other eleven teams of this year’s Rugby Africa Men’s Sevens Tournament in Monastir.
The squad will be accompanied by Head Coach “Dallars” Lovemore Kuzorera, Team Manager Salisu Abdul Rahman and Board Members Bismark Amponsah and Ernest Hanson.
According to Mensah Ghana Rugby has worked extremely hard to get to this point and to achieve full membership of World Rugby and to win both the fifteens Regional Challenge in 2017 and the Rugby Africa Bronze Cup earlier in the year Elmina, Ghana.
“We have also held our 2018 Annual General Meeting and it is clear that there is so much to do with so little resources. We continue to rely on the private sector in knowledge that Government is not yet ready to meaningfully support the development of sports outside soccer,” Mensah said.
