As well as the 1969 (23 August) match detailed earlier between Liberia and Sierra Leone which can be found on YouTube, there also appears to have been a match in 1975, and perhaps regular matches between the teams between those dates... As far as I know, none of the results are known.

Jones, Roderick Granville John
Played rugby for Sierra Leone v Liberia (1975?).

Sierra Leone played at least 5 international matches between 1963 and 1971.

Nice vid from WR about rugby in Ghana: https://twitter.com/WorldRugby/status/9 ... 1986110464
At one point in the vid the president of the Ghana Union says they have a professional 10 team league.

It may mean professional as in well run/well organised rather than paid players?

How can he lie so openly like that? Ghana have just started playing rugby in 2017. Their first competition was the RWC 7s qualifier that took place in Uganda in August. They are still far behind the pecking order, so they should just stay calm and work in the field rather than with their mouths. :lol: :lol:

I've seen on the Tipping page of the forum that there's a Sierra Leone v Guinea Conakry test match fixed for this saturday.
Anyway, it appears still uncertain according to the last news found (middle of september). Sierra Leone, hosting this return leg of the duel, needs 32 millions of leones, the local money, but they can't find any sponsor; it's less than 4,000 euros but I suppose it's a lot of money over there

It could have been postponed to december 10, according to this page https://www.facebook.com/Sierra-Leone-R ... 793925807/
