Bermuda Men's Rugby Team Announced

IslandStats.com
Following the teams departure the Bermuda Rugby Football Union announced their squad for the Men’s XV Caribbean Championship game against Cayman Islands which takes place in Grand Cayman on June 9, 2018.

Earlier today www.islandstats.com reported that Trinidad pulled out of the Tournament giving this match a different meaning.

Coming off the back of two losses in the tournament Bermuda will be facing tough competition from fierce rivals Cayman Islands, but Head Coach Peter Lewington has opted to leave the side relatively unchanged with only one rookie, Dany Pell, being named to his lineup. Coach Lewington said, “We know that the game against Cayman will be extremely competitive and whilst we have not done as well in our two previous matches as we had hoped I have every faith in the abilities of the team that we have announced.”

This game will see the return of veteran backs Corey Boyce and Dan Cole after they were both unavailable for selection in the game against Trinidad.

This will help give Bermuda that edge that in the backs that they were missing in their last game. Veteran forward Tashon Desilva will miss the game due to an injury he sustained in the game against Trinidad so stepping in his place will be Police RFC player Darren Richardson.

Bermuda-Cayman Island Winner to Advance

Bermuda-Cayman battle in 2017
IslandStats.com
News has surfaced that Trinidad & Tobago have dropped out of the 2018 Rugby Americas North Championships Regional Qualifiers.

This means Bermuda are in a one-game playoff with Cayman Islands in Cayman on Saturday June 9th.

The match will be Cayman Island’s opening game of the qualifying stage. Bermuda was defeated heavily by USA South in their opener and then they went down to Trinidad & Tobago, so with Trinidad & Tobago pulling out, combined with USA South ineligible to advance due to it’s developmental status for it’s National Men’s team, this game has a winner take all advancement.

Cayman has defeated Bermuda the past two years, both home and away.

If Bermuda win on Saturday, they will play the winner of Guyana and Mexico in early 2019. The winner of that playoff advances to the newly formed 2019 Rugby Americas Challenge.

Bermuda Rugby Referee To Attend World Rugby In Paris
The Bermuda Rugby Football Union (BRFU) announced that local senior referee and referee coach, John Weale, has been selected by Rugby Americas North (RAN) to represent the region at an upcoming World Rugby workshop which takes place in Paris, France from June 8th - 10th.

Weale, a Bermudian and 22 year veteran of refereeing rugby in Bermuda and around the world, said, “I am incredibly honored to have been selected to represent the entire region, which comprises the USA, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean, at this event.

Weale said, “I am excited to have the opportunity to work with Paddy O’Brian and Craig Joubert who oversee refereeing for all major World Rugby 7s events including the World Cup, the Olympics as well as the HSBC World 7s Series.

“This is the first time a Caribbean official has been selected and it is something most referee managers/coaches never get the chance to experience throughout their career as a rugby official so I am extremely humbled and privileged,” continue Weale.

The event, which is being organized by World Rugby, aims to bring together the top rugby officials from around the world to have a forum on best practice for managing high performance 7s referees. It takes place in conjunction with the final leg of the HSBC World 7s Series, in Paris from Friday to Sunday.

Sean Field-Lament, President of the BRFU, said, “Having represented Bermuda and the region on the field of play as a referee for so many years, it is great that John is now getting recognition for his passionate work behind the scenes as a Referee Coach/Manager.”

Field-Lament concluded, “With John being selected to represent the region it is a testament to the programs we have in place which focus on developing top local rugby officials. It also highlights the avenues and opportunities that exist for our local officials to be involved with officiating rugby at the very top level”.

Weale is one of 4 participants in the event, the others representing Rugby Sud America, AsiaRugby, and RugbyAfrique.
