Ruggers to end season with a bang

The National Park is the place to be today as the 2015 rugby season concludes with the final games of the GTT 10s tournament.

Come and see Guyana’s top four clubs, GDF, the Pepsi Hornets, Caribs and the UG Wolves scrum, tackle and ‘try’ to earn the coveted GTT 10s champion’s trophy and the momentum heading into the 2016 season.

Action kicks off at 15:00hrs with the hungry Wolves taking on the rugged GDF outfit. The Caribs will take on the Hornets in the other encounter.

GDF is the virtual leader heading into today’s matches with 11 points followed by the Hornets two points adrift. The Wolves and Caribs are on five points apiece.

Prior to the club games, there will be the staging of the Scotiabank Youth Rugby tournament starting at 10:00hrs.

This was disclosed by the Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU) Second Vice President, Joshua Griffith during a press briefing yesterday at the GTT Head office on Brickdam.

According to Griffith, the youth tournament will involve players from as young as seven all the way up to 16 years. He added that the tournament will be held “in an effort to develop rugby at the youth level” and encouraged fans to attend since there will be delicious dishes and beverages for sale.

Meanwhile, GTT’s Nadia DeAbreu  reminded that GTT and the GRFU inked a three-year, $13.5M deal two months ago and today’s final is the first of many to come under the agreement.

DeAbreu also extended best wishes to the clubs and also encouraged patrons to support the fixture. Elsewhere, the captains of the outfits were all confident of victories heading into today’s finale. See you there. (Emmerson Campbell)
