The Ghana Rugby Women’s Sevens National Team, the Ghana Eagles, visited Sunda International to attend an event where the long-time sponsor of Ghana congratulated the team and awarded them with winners’ parcels.
The Women’s Eagles returned from Tunisia on Monday after participating in the Rugby Africa Women’s Sevens Tournament in Monastir. Despite being its first-ever appearance at an international event the Ghana Rugby Women’s team managed to win the Challenge Trophy by beating Zambia by 21 points to 14.
Sunda International, a Chinese global company with operations in Ghana, has been supporters of Ghana Rugby for the past three years and have made regular contributions in both cash and in-kind to the development of rugby in Ghana.
According to the President of Ghana Rugby, Mr Herbert Mensah, the many achievements of Ghana Rugby in just a few years would not have been possible without the support of corporate institutions such as Sunda International.
“We have been fortunate to gain the support of Sunda International and other corporates such as the Panafrican Equipment Group, Komatsu, Interplast, the Gino brands and Societe Generale Ghana since my administration took over rugby in June 2014. Without their support, we would never have been able to compete in international competitions and achieve the successes we have had,” Mensah said.
According to Mensah, Ghana Rugby is a young yet dynamic full member of World Rugby and Rugby Africa that managed to achieve the following in fewer than five years:
Ghana Rugby will be taking part in two more international tournaments in 2019 that include the Rugby Africa Men’s Sevens Tournament on 8 and 9 November 2019 in South Africa as well as the hosting of the elimination match in Ghana against Botswana on 23 November in Elmina-Ghana.
