JUST one week after being dethroned by University of Guyana Wolves in the Trophy Stall Rugby Sevens, the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) returned the favour to be crowned the 2015 Banks Beer Rugby Sevens Champions. GDF won 17–14 in the final played at the UG rugby yesterday as Dwayne Schroeder and Avery Corbin dominated the score sheet. The eventual victors dominated the first half with a try each from Schroeder and Corbin. Corbin also scored again in the second while Schroeder converted to take the tally to 17.

On the other side of the boat, Lance Adonis recorded a try and two conversions for Wolves while Owen Adonis got a touch over the try line in the second half.
The teams exhibited a good display of competition with GDF being in a no-nonsense mood, playing the entire day undefeated. GDF drew first blood in the first minute of play and commanded the game until the final whistle.
UG and GDF competed alongside Police Sports Club, Yamaha Caribs, and Pepsi Hornets.
In other results, Caribs versus Police 19–12, GDF versus UG 21–10, Caribs versus Hornets 14–10, GDF versus Police 24–5, Hornets versus UG 7–35, GDF versus Caribs 45–0, UG versus Police 26–0, GDF versus Hornets 5–5, UG versus Caribs 12–0, Police versus Hornets 7–12.
There were also three female matches between seasoned and not so seasoned players in the Guyana Rugby Football Union’s bid to resuscitate women’s rugby.
Rugby action continues next week with the hosting of a Schools’ Tournament.
