    Well done guys. How much do government give youth Rugby a year? I hear very little but they win!!

    • Nothing But the Truth says:

      I play rugby and that is a true understatement. Not just for the youth but in general. Our national teams consistently bring home wins and we hear nothing about it until now. Thank you Bernews and BSN

      Bermuda government doesn’t give a dime to rugby. All of the money either comes from corporate sponsorship, fundraisers or donations and guess what……we win! Bermuda given does give cricket money and what do they do? lose 90% of their games. I think rugby is the future for Bermuda. I’ve seen so many new players from various background and races. Rick, poor, black or white…….they are playing rugby!
