MEA Director believes Ghana could emerge as Rugby League powerhouses

Middle East-Africa (MEA) Director, Remond Safi, believes that the Rugby League Federation Ghana (RLFG) could emerge as a powerhouse not only in the region but in the world.

The Rugby League European Federation (RLEF) officer responsible for the region spoke excitedly about the progress being made in the region stating “It has been exhilarating overseen the MEA regions growth over the years. The region is looking great with the increase of activities and other nations looking to establish the game. MEA will be a future powerhouse with untapped talent coming from the region.”


“Looking forward to RLWC2025 [2025 Rugby League World Cup], I can see some of the nations making an impact. South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana and Morocco could emerge quite quickly due to the amount of experienced players that they could call upon from France, Australia and the UK in support of their own domestic talent.” He continued


The RLFG has been making waves in the Rugby League world ever since its revitalisation in 2015 from holding the first University of Ghana (UG) Inter-Hall Rugby League Championships in March 2016 to finishing 3rd in their first-ever international appearance at the 2019 Middle East Africa (MEA) Rugby League Championship. The country is also currently ranked 3rd in Africa and 33rd in the World.

The Ghana Rugby League is set to hold a blood donation exercise from 7AM-12PM (GMT) at the Decathlon Ghana premises, Nungua Barrier on 17th October 2020.
