T and T to compete in the Las Vegas Invitational Rugby Tournament

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC- The Trinidad and Tobago men and women national rugby teams will participate in the Las Vegas Invitational Rugby Tournament from January 23- 25.

The “Calypso Warriors” are registered to play in the Las Vegas Invitational men and women Elite Sevens division.

The T&T women will battle with teams from Canada, Japan, France and the USA.

The men will face national teams from Belgium, Mexico, Chile, Peru , Cayman Islandsand select sides from Canada and USA.

Trinidad and Tobago Rugby Football Union (TTRFU) president Leslie Figaro said the Invitational Sevens will be separate from the prestigious IRB World Sevens Series USA Sevens and represents an excellent opportunity for the T&T players.

“The men’s team is preparing for the Hong Kong Sevens World Sevens Qualifier which will take place in March. To compete in the Las Vegas Invitational while at the same time watch Fiji, New Zealand, South Africa, England, Samoa, Argentina, Kenya etc. is of immense benefit,” Figaro said.

“Our women are in preparation mode for important tournaments later this year. I expect the players to return even more motivated.”
