NOT EVERY CARIBBEAN TEAM  is struggling with  English conditions.
A select Barbados Rugby Sevens squad recently gave a good account of itself after barely missing out on the semi-finals of the Ashby Seven’s tournament  in Leicestershire.
Participating in  a training camp hosted by Leicester Forest, the team culminated  the camp by beating Sutton Boddington, Loughborough Students and Team Damage 38-7, 24-17 and 41-0  in their pool games.
But the Bajans couldn’t sustain their momentum, losing in overtime during a hard fought heartbreaker against a select  side G-Force.
“It was a very good camp [and] we got more than we expected out  of our time,” said head coach Joe Whipple.
“We worked hard for the two days prior to the tournament including playing two games against a Leicester Forest side [and] this load showed a little in the quarter-finals.  
“However, this takes nothing away from the players’ efforts. I was particularly pleased with the performances of the three Barbadian-based players Jae Bowen, Dario Stoute and Sean Ward, who were voted MVP and Most Improved  by the players. We will continue our programme over the next three months leading up to  the Rugby World Cup Qualifiers in Canada,” he added.
The Barbados Olympic Association, The Arts And Sports Promotion Fund of the Ministry  of Finance and Virgin Atlantic joined  to sponsor Barbados  for the camp.  (JM/PR)
