Promasidor Nigeria Limited, maker of Cowbell Milk and the main sponsor of the Cowbell iTry Rugby League for Secondary schools in Lagos, says the emergence of a future Nigerian National rugby team from the school kids competing in the ongoing tourney is a vision on the horizon for the company.

The company has been a proud supporter of rugby in Nigeria and, last year, partnered with the Nigeria Rugby Football Federation (NRFF) to launch a coach cluster aimed at grooming future rugby stars.

The game of rugby is a relatively unpopular sport in the country, but the company is poised to helping the nation record success in a sport that has flourished in some other parts of Africa.

Speaking at the Methodist Boy’s High School, Victoria Island Lagos, managing director, Promasidor, Chief Keith Richards, said the company has set out to see the young stars it is currently grooming play for the Black Stallions, the Nigerian national rugby team.

The manager also commended the efforts of the NRFF towards the success of the ongoing tournament that’s in its second stage, admitting that with the consistent show of commitment the company’s vision for the kids will be realised.

“If we continue with this level of commitment, we can achieve a lot,” Richards said.

The first cluster of the Cowbell iTry Rugby League for Secondary schools in Lagos State consists of eight teams grouped into four clusters with 34 participating schools.

  • As the Technical Director of the NRFF, i am not aware that promasidor partnered with Nigeria Rugby Football Federation Last year. Though they are doing a good job but I advice that things be done properly. The current NRFF administration knows nothing about the activities of the ITry.
