Ahead of the 2020 University of Ghana Inter-Hall Rugby League 9s, all the teams have vowed to go for the ultimate goal – to win the competition.
Six Halls, Akuafo Hall (2019 champions), Commonwealth Hall, Jubilee and International Students Hostel (JISH), Hilla Liman Hall, Jean Nelson Hall and Mensah Sarbah Hall will come up against each other from March 3-13, 2020 at the University of Ghana Rugby Field.
“This year’s games promise to be the best yet with most of the players already playing in the Ghana Rugby League Championship, the Nines Series and some even in the national team I am sure of a spectacular showdown” said Julius Amevor (Head Coach, University of Ghana)
Speaking on Akuafo Hall’s chances without their two charismatic leaders Collins Ofosu and Nigel Sackey, this is what captain Boahene Kelvin had to say;
“Everyone thinks Akuafo Hall has lost two great players and so we are not capable of winning the competition but I want to assure you that the Akuafo team now is still the same old team you once knew. We are reaching out for nothing less than the Gold medal”.
Meanwhile first runners up, Commonwealth still with the core of their team have called for the best in sportsmanship to enable them to win the competition.
“Coming into this year’s inter-hall competition, I expect good rugby, clean tackles and awesome game plans. Basically beautiful Rugby. Vandals will come for nothing but gold” – Calvinson Accolor (Captain, Commonwealth Hall)
