“Over the last few years we have reformed Women’s Rugby in Ghana. We now have a full fledged league with teams and playing in it and we are one of the best in Africa. Ghana Women’s rugby is ready for the call and opportunity to pit ourselves against the others in Africa,” Mensah said.

According to Inusah the Ghana Ladies presented two teams and the “Get Into Rugby” Ladies pitched up with four teams.
