Ruggers will very soon have a designated area where they will be able to train and effectively prepare for regional and international meets.
Director of Sport, Christopher Jones told the Department of Public Information (DPI) that the National Sports Commission (NSC) has adopted the rugby field in the National Park which will be dedicated to the Rugby Association.
DPI said that the field is expected to undergo major rehabilitation works under the ground enhancement programme for 2018. Upon completion of the ground, it will be outfitted with adequate lighting and bleachers for spectators. The Ministry of Public Infrastructure will also be providing several loads of earth to develop the field, DPI said.
The project which was to commence late last year, saw it being delayed due to the inclement weather and the availability of soil. Nevertheless, by the first quarter of this year, Jones said that works on the site should commence.
