Rain, glorious rain! Finally on 29 April 2013 rain fell on the parched soil of Kano Racecourse.
Many rugby people would find it extraordinary that a rugby club could exist in a part of the world where it only rains four months of the year. Barewa rugby have over the years devised ways to overcome this drawback, by practising tackling and rucking etc on the sandier areas of our pitch. So when the rains arrive each year with the promise of grass - fantastic, soft, green grass - we have every reason to get excited!
So all you rugby people out there playing on green, manicured pitches, spare a thought for your rugby brothers at Barewa RFC.
