Rain fails to spoil schools’ rugby opening
The inclement weather that hit the country last Saturday did not stop the young rugby players who gathered for the opening of the Digicel Schools’ Rugby League at the Queen’s Park Savannah.
In spite of the heavy rain, there was a great display of talent and skills when players from 22 schools—12 at Under-17’s level and ten at Under-14’s level—participated in friendly matches to kick-start this year’s rugby season.
There were no real winners or losers on the day and if the showcase on Saturday was any indication, it seems as if schools’ rugby is off to a great start.
The tournament will run until mid-December with both age groups facing off to take home their respective trophies.
Thanks to the proven success of the previous years, the rugby union is also planning to expand the league and launch a tournament in south Trinidad, initially involving five schools with plans to include more along the way.
Rugby lovers can expect a busy season with the launch of a Seven Tournament, which will be held in January 2014, and the inclusion of six girls’ teams in the women’s league this year.
