Samurai Barracudas defeated Cowrie Rfc of Lagos 26-0 to win the 8th edition of the Lagos Independence Rugby 7s on Sunday at the Lagos Polo club.

The two day event which featured 12 teams drawn from different parts of Nigeria, as well as South Africa and the United Kingdom, expectedly attracted a large crowd of rugby enthusiasts, who were thoroughly thrilled.

In some of the classification matches played earlier, Sabongari Rfc beat Warri Wolves 14-0, to win the Bowl final and the cash prize of one hundred thousand naira; Delta Force Rfc defeated Nasarawa Rfc 15-12 to win the Plate, as well as, a cash prize of N150, 000.

In the exhibition games, Edo Women defeated Lagos 10-5; and Barewa Academy defeated Edo Boys 15-12. The impressive crowd were made to salivate for the biggest game of the event, as the veterans of the game from Nigeria thumped their South African counterparts.

Speaking during the event, President of the Nigeria Rugby Football Federation, Kelechukwu Mbagwu, expressed his satisfaction on the improved standard and quality of the games at this year’s championship.

He stated that the future of the game in Nigeria remain bright, adding that the NRFF would continue to explore all avenues to popularise the game, as well as, making it youth friendly. (Vanguard)
