Ghana sevens squad for 2018 Rugby Africa Men’s Sevens Tournament set for Monastir, Tunisia on 13th-14th October has been named.

South Africa based duo of Kofi Appiah and Kwame Gavor are part of the squad announced on Thursday by Herbert Mensah who serves as the President of Ghana Rugby Union.

“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 before naming the team.

The Rugby Eagles will depart for Tunisia tomorrow morning for a six-day camp after which they will join the other eleven teams of this year’s tournament.

The team will be accompanied by Head Coach “Dallars” Lovemore Kuzorera, Team Manager Salisu Abdul Rahman and Board Members Bismark Amponsah and Ernest Hanson.

While in Tunis, they will be joined by UK based technical advisory team of Stuart Aimer (S&C Coach) and Collin Osborne (Skills Coach) who will guide the team in the last mile preparation for what will be a very tough competition.

Ghana are in pool B with back-to-back champions Uganda and Senegal. They start their campaign against Uganda then finish off with Senegal.


Abdul Jalilu Yussif, Alexander Dorpenyo, David Acho Nartey, Emmanuel Kalos, Francis Kweku Mensah-Donkor, Gideon Klugey, Jason Dzata, Kofi Montchon, Kofi Anarfi Anokye Appiah (SA), Michael Acquaye, Selom Kwame Gavor (SA) and Yaya Lukman.
