George Duckett Memorial Rugby Set For Today

January 12, 2019

The Bermuda Police Rugby Football Club are hosting the 46th Annual George Duckett Memorial Rugby Tournament at Police Field in Prospect this afternoon [Jan 12].

George Duckett was a former Commissioner of Police who was assassinated in 1972. Mr. Duckett was a larger than life Commissioner who had a commanding presence and stood at 6’5” tall and was well known as an ardent rugby fan.

Serving Officers, former colleagues, and ‘Faded Blues’ [former police rugby players] and rugby fans from across the Island continue to show their respect by attending this BPS sporting tradition.
