The Ghana Rugby Football Union (GRFU) led by the President and Board Chairman, Mr. Herbert Mensah, has sent its best wishes message to its Technical Director Collin Osborne as he undergoes knee surgery.
The former head coach of the Zimbabwe rugby national team (Zimbabwe Sables) will be undergoing an emergency knee replacement surgery in the UK.
Collin Osborne is regarded as one of the best technically gifted rugby coaches in Ghana and Africa at large.
He has made a great impact in Africa rugby especially the development he brought to rugby in Zimbabwe when he landed the national team coaching job.
He discovered England rugby star Kyle Sinckler and a host of other rugby players who are making headways in the game.
Collin Osborne worked for the English rugby top-flight side Harlequins for twenty years and was the skills coach of the team when they were crowned the Premiership champions in 2012.
He is also known for playing a part in determining a strategy to develop rugby in Ghana.
We also wish Collin Osborne all the best ahead of his knee replacement surgery.
