Longtails claim All-Star win

Jacques DeVertueil scored two tries as Longtails narrowly beat Barracudas in the Ariel Re High School All-Star Game on Wednesday.

DeVertueil's scores, plus one from fellow Warwick Academy team-mate Nick DaCosta was enough to give Longtails a 15-12 win at the National Sports Centre's North Field.

Camren Caines and Mikel Dill scored for Barracudas, with Jahniko Francis kicking one conversion.

“It was a fantastic game to watch,” Gareth Nokes, of the Bermuda Rugby Football Union, said. “More importantly these kids were committed and focused on playing the match with their team-mates. The school and background of each player was totally irrelevant, and the quality of rugby was impressive.

“It is clear Bermuda has some magnificent rugby talent coming through, which bodes well for the future.”
