Promasidor Sees Future Black Stallion from iTry Rugby Players

As the Cowbell iTry Rugby League for secondary schools in Lagos State enters second stage with the launch of cluster B, Promasidor Nigeria Limited, maker of Cowbell Milk and a key sponsor of the tournament, has foreseen the emergence of the future Nigerian National rugby team from the school kids competing for Lagos 7s final.

Promasidor in partnership with Nigeria Rugby Football Federation (NRFF), last year launched the coaching cluster with the aim of grooming rugby future rugby stars and more importantly to support the game of rugby, a relatively unpopular sport in Nigeria.

Speaking at the Methodist High School, Victoria Island, Lagos, the venue of the Cluster B launch, the Managing Director, Promasidor, Chief Keith Richards said the company is driven by its dream to see the young stars it is grooming play for the Black Stallions-the Nigerian National rugby team.

Keith who commended the efforts of the NRFF and also admitted that the kids showed promise in the game of rugby said “if we continue with this level of commitment, we can achieve a lot.”

He enjoined the participating teams to uphold the spirit of commitment, passion and respect as playing with that spirit would not only be useful for the game of rugby but also in all spheres of life.

The Promasidor boss, rewarded an 8-year old rugby player, Miss Akinola Marvelous of Nana Apori Secondary School adjudged to be the youngest participating kid in cluster B league with some company’s products.

Through consistency and unflinching commitment, the company reached a milestone with the launch of rugby league for first cluster last week at CMS Grammar School Bariga, Lagos.

The first cluster which was concluded on Saturday June 1st saw Toyibat Ggbagada crush CMS Grammar School Bariga by 1 try to nil to emerge as cluster champion in the boy’s category while Queens College Yaba defeated Toyibat Ggbagada by 3 tries to 1 to become winner in the girl’s category.
