THE?Barbados team will embark on their quest for Southern Caribbean Rugby Championship honours with a clash against Guyana at the Guyana National?Stadium tomorrow afternoon.
The “Young?Lions” leave today for Georgetown to take on the formidable defending champions in the second round of the NACRA Caribbean Championships in the 4 p.m. clash at Providence.
After convincingly beating Curacao 41-3 in early April, the Barbadians have continued to train hard and were fortunate to have two competitive preparatory games against the Ontario provincial team, Balmy Beach RFC, earlier this month.
Coach of the forwards Romeo Mayers is under no illusion on how difficult the task will be for the “Young Lions” against the Guyanese, who have been Southern Caribbean champions for the past two years.
“The players have worked extremely hard at training and have shown the intensity, physicality and skill to be quietly confident of getting a result this weekend,” Mayers said.
Barbados will play their final Round Two match against Trinidad and Tobago on May 25 at the Garrison Savannah at 4 p.m.
Forwards: Dwight Forde (captain), Neil Forde, Jeren Clarke, Caston Howard, Antonio Gibbons, Christian Preece, Kevyn Murrell, Raj Edwards, Stephen Millar, Adon Rogers, Shaun English, Marcus Harewood, Irfan Khan.
Backs: Nico Blunt, Stephen Atwell, Kevin Carter, Nicholas Jackman, Sean Ward, Kevin Cobham, Anthony Bynoe, Dario Stoute, Ramoun Downes. (EZS)
