    The 1st edition of the President Cup took off in grand style on Friday at the Onikan stadium with Cowrie RFC winning all their 3 matches to qualify for the cup semifinals of the 1st edition of the tournament.

    Cowrie defeated Merlins RFC from UK by 19points to 15 before displacing Gosar RFC by 47 points to 0 in a one sided affair.

    In their last game, they handed Sabongari RFC a 26-0 defeat to finish at the top of group A.

    Still in group A, Merlins recovered well from their 1st defeat as they bounced back to win their 2nd game against Sabongeri RFC by 26points.

    The UK team finished their last group stage game against Gosar RFC with an emphatic 28 points victory to finish second in the group, qualifying for the cup semifinals.

    Barewa RFC started their President Cup campaign on a bright note defeating Panthers RFC made up of foreign and home based Nigerian players by 17points to 5 and then winning their last game against Delta RFC by 24points to 0

    Nigeria Police RFC whom many tipped to get to the finals of the competition fell by the roadside as they narrowly lost out of the cup semifinals with points differences after beating Parakou RFC of Benin Republic by 12-5 and later playing a 7-all draw with eventual group winner, Racing RFC.

    With the finals slated for tomorrow, Cowrie RFC will battle Barewa RFC while Merlin will take on Racing who finished top of group B with 5 points in the Cup semi finals of the inaugural edition of the competition.
    In the Plate semifinals Panthers will face Sabongeri RFC and Police will take on Gosar.

    The Shield finals will take place between Delta RFC and Parakou RFC of Benin Republic.
