The Bermuda Men’s National XVs team is set to clash with the Cayman Islands in an electrifying World Rugby International Test Match.

A spokesperson said, “Scheduled for 5:00 PM ADT on Saturday, May 4, 2024, at North Field, National Sports Centre, this game not only promises to showcase top-tier rugby action but also marks the beginning of a critical season for both teams.

“As the kick-off event in a series of internationals, this match is pivotal for Bermuda’s preparation for upcoming fixtures against Jamaica and the Bahamas, scheduled for May 18 and June 1 respectively. These games are part of the Rugby America’s North [RAN] qualification pathway, a competition spread over three years from 2024-2026. The ultimate goal for regional finalists is to compete in the ARCh competition, with the winner advancing to the APAC Americas Pool #4 for entry into the prestigious 2028 APAC.
