The first game of the day saw Accra Sharks RFC, take on Cosmos Buffaloes RFC.

This feature was more like a ?David vs Goliath? battle with Cosmos Buffaloes, the log leaders, running riot and scoring try after try from the start of the game to the final whistle.

Accra Sharks, to the surprise of everyone, proved a little tough in the first 20 minutes of the game, scoring two tries, but they could not hold Cosmos Buffaloes off for too long. The Buffaloes won the game comfortably by 62 points to 10 and further increased their lead on the log table before the break.

Coach Amuzolouh of Cosmos Buffaloes was very excited, citing the fact that, with this emphatic win, Buffaloes are in clear contention to win the first league title under the new president of GRFU, Herbert Mensah.

The second game was arguably the toughest game of the day, between Legon Titans and Idas Sports. Both teams had lost one game prior to kick off, incidentally, to the log leaders Cosmos Buffaloes. Therefore both were looking to secure the second position on the log before the end of the first leg, to put either of them in title contention.

The game ended 17 to 18 points in favour of Idas Sports, enabling them to secure the second position on the log.

Abdul Samad of Idas Sports was elated about his team?s victory.

The final game of the day, between Tema Anchors and Dansoman Hurricanes ended 69 points to 7 in favour of the Dansoman boys.

Mr Herbert Mensah, president of the Ghana Rugby Football Union, said he was impressed with what he saw after attending the last matches of Round One in Accra.

Below is the league table at the end of round 1.
