The fledgling Ghana rugby league project has taken its first practical steps with development manager Sylvester Wellington, a 26-year-old Accra native, being appointed.
Wellington, who will be joined in the GRL development team by University of Ghana rugby league coordinator Alfred Attieku, is undergoing generic leadership and sports leadership training through UK Sport International's established programme, the Beckwith International Leadership Development initiative.
Part of UK Sport International's programme involves a coaching exchange with Edge Hill University, with the latter sending out Wigan St. Patrick's juniors coach Alex Winstanley to guide the Ghanaian duo through their first steps into the world of rugby league.
