GUYANA’s National 15’s Rugby team – the 2014 NACRA Champions – is presently heightening preparation ahead of their crucial April 11 clash with long time foes Trinidad and Tobago.The Green Machine will voyage to the Twin Island Republic for a rematch of their 2013 match where the ‘Trinis’ defeated the Guyanese 20 – 0 when they met at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Campus ground.
Two years later and a championship under their belt, the Guyanese Ruggers return for a rematch but this time, much more than just winning is at stake.
According to the Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU), the winner will go on to play the winner of the North Zone to determine who will be the NACRA 2015 Champions.
Boosted by the inclusion of Australian based Kevin McKenzie, Guyana, who defeated Barbados 48–22 in their first game in the North American and Caribbean Rugby Association (NACRA) at the National Park, will announce their squad sometime this week.
Also returning to the squad are some of the core players who just returned from the HBS7 in Hong Kong.
