July 19, 2019 | 0 Comments

Bermuda continued competing in the Rugby Americas North [RAN] U19 tournament in Barbados, defeating the home team to advance to the next round, where they will match up against Trinidad & Tobago.

Bermuda began their day by facing off against Barbados in the final pool game for the tournament. The team held a tight defense, and managed to score two tries, two conversions and two penalty kicks. However, while they did allow Barbados to make the board with their only try of the tournament, they remained victorious defeating Barbados 18-5.

This win put Bermuda in the Cup Semi-Final, competing against tournament favourite, Mexico, who have obliterated all other competition throughout the tournament. Bermuda demonstrated strong teamwork and an excellent defensive line-up throughout the game, and although they succumbed to Mexico by a score of 17-0, they are the only team to keep Mexico to less than 20-points in a single game.

Bermuda now advances to play for third place against Trinidad & Tobago, while Mexico will take on the US for the tournament cup.

The finals are expected to be broadcast live on the Rugby Americas North YouTube page this Sunday, with the first game beginning at 11am Bermuda [10am ET]. Bermuda’s game is set to begin at 2pm [1pm ET].
