“I feel awesome and proud. I knew my team could deliver and they didn’t disappoint me. This, I believe, is just a tip of the iceberg. I believe in my team and we would do everything in our power to keep the Throne” – Rachel Ankomah (Team Manageress of Skolars Rugby League Club)

“Overall, the play and game knowledge has improved. There were less tries (24) and the rate of injuries also reduced as player safety measures were lifted a notch higher by the Officials. I enjoyed this month’s more and I hope the subsequent editions will see a lot more improvement”- Jafaru Mustapha (Manager, Rugby League Federation Ghana)
