Bermuda are forced to make changes

Bermuda will bring their Rugby Americas North Championship campaign to an end against Cayman Islands tomorrow.

Despite a comfortable 30-13 win over Bahamas this month Bermuda go into the game as underdogs, having lost their previous two meetings to Cayman.

Still, Bermuda are second in group A and a win would represent a successful season, having only lost to Mexico in the high-altitude of Mexico City.

With Antonio Perinchief, Darren Richardson and Patrick Calow all unavailable for the trip, Bermuda have made three changes to the squad that beat Bahamas, with Rich Howells, Paddy Graham, and Guerhardt Lamprecht coming into the side.

Richardson's absence could mean a return to the front row for Thomas Greenslade, who has been switched to flanker this season to accommodate Conor McGlynn's move to hooker.

Tomorrow's game starts at 9pm Bermuda time, and will be streamed live on the Cayman Rugby website.

Bermuda: Dustin Archibald, Nigel Burgess, Camren Caines, Aldo Campbell, Aldon Campbell, Jahan Cedenio, Dan Cole, Tashon DeSilva, Mikle Dill, Peter Dunkerley (capt), Tommy Edwards, Jahniko Francis, Patrick Graham, Bennet Gibson, Thomas Greenslade, Tom Healy, Richard Howells, Guerhardt Lamprecht, Conor McGlynn, Chris La Placa, Adam Richards, Chris Stafford, Roedolf van der Westhuizen.
