The Annual Freeport Junior International Rugby Festival will see more than 400 young athletes from around the world compete in the Bahamas. The BRFU tour will consist of more than 50 young players from the island.

The tour is an opportunity for promising young athletes to gain experience of representing Bermuda and to engage with other local players from different programmes and schools.

Andrew Green, on behalf of the Green Family, said: “We are delighted to be able to support Bermuda’s young rugby players. The BRFU’s Mini Rugby programme teaches children important life skills, including respect, honesty and teamwork and we are proud to be involved in the programme.”

Sean Field-Lament, President of the Bermuda Rugby Football Union, said: “We are grateful to the Green family for their generous donation.

“We are so pleased that these youth programmes are getting the support needed to maximize the wonderful opportunities to play rugby for Bermuda. Great memories, lifelong friendships and character building are the positive outcomes we aspire to.”
