The SVG Rugby Union’s senior men’s team set sail for St. Lucia on Friday, February 17th for a fun-filled rugby weekend. After a 10 hour sail to Rodney Bay, the team arrived in high spirits ready to take on St. Lucia on Saturday for a 15-a- side friendly match, which was also the kick-off of the 15s league. Unfortunately due to money restraints and work commitments, a full 15-a- side team was unable to travel, so the team was mixed with some St. Lucian players.

After tries from Vincentian players, Leonard Matthews, Zhane Cerdine and Giles Garraway and 2 conversions from George Kruger, the overall score was 48 St. Lucia – 19 to St. Vincent. Despite the loss it was a great weekend with our rugby neighbors and friends in St. Lucia. SVG RU would like to remind the public that we are currently recruiting both U19 & senior players, male and female and those interested should show up to practice at Sion Hill Playing Field, Tuesday’s and Thursday’s.
