World class ruggers still not getting support
What more does rugby have to do to earn and deserve full, unqualified national support and funding?
This was the question asked by former president of the Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU), Kit Nascimento on Wednesday night during a reception at Duke Lodge to celebrate the NACRA 15s championship.
Guyana stormed back from a 24-8 half time deficit to defeat USA South 30-27 in Atlanta last month to lift the champion’s trophy.
Nascimento, who coordinated the reception for the players and the top brass of the union, highlighted that the ruggers’ achievements trump any local team sport and called on the government and stakeholders to lend more support for Guyana’s most successful contemporary discipline.
