Without breaking a sweat, the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) rugby outfit marched off with the spoils when the Bounty Farm 15s League concluded yesterday at the National Park. 

The GDF ruggers were scheduled to face the Yamaha Caribs in yesterday’s final for the trophy but the Caribs could not field a full starting unit, gifting a walk-over win to the militia men in the process who earned a full five points without a tackle or ruck. 

GDF finished on 36, three points clear of the Panthers to add the League trophy to their collection.

The fans who showed up to witness the final were a bit disappointed but the ruggers decided to play a friendly, a mixed players match to appease the supporters and also to keep their competitive juices flowing ahead of the 2018 season which kicks off today at the same venue.
