Bermuda well-beaten by visiting side Queen’s

A Bermuda Select XI lost 74-0 to the Queen's University Gaels, from Kingston, Ontario, at North Field, National Sports Centre, last night.

Bermuda's team was made up national team players and new faces looking to be considered for selection when the senior side take on Queen's at the same venue on Saturday.

Among those in attendance was Peter Lewington, who has replaced Brian Arhcibald as Bermuda's head coach.

Scotsman Archibald, who coached the select XI last night, is now eligible for selection for Rugby Americas North tournament, which is earmarked for April.

Archibald is confident the match between Bermuda and Queen's on Saturday will be a far more competitive affair.

“This was a club select team and a chance for us to look at some players who we think maybe there or thereabouts for the national team,” Archibald said.

“The new coach, Peter Lewington, was here and it gave him a chance to see some of them in action.

“[Queen's] we're clearly a team who have been through pre-season and were a lot fitter and healthier than we were.

“But we had a few boys who fronted up and it was good to have a look at them.”
