A combined team of Mariners and Renegades players secured their second straight victory since domestic rugby resumed from a Covid-19 related hiatus at the weekend.

The victors virtually had things their own way in a lopsided 24-7 thrashing of Police at the National Sports Centre North Field in glorious sunshine on Saturday.

Robyn Brickell provided the bulk of the scoring for the combined team with two tries, while Dzuri Gill and Connor McGlynn chipped in with one and Robyn Brickell added a conversion.

Police replied through a sole try from Nick Spell with Dan Cole kicking the extra points.

The win followed on the heels of the combined Mariners and Renegades team’s 29-15 triumph against Teachers in their previous outing, which saw domestic rugby resume having been suspended after two rounds last month due to the pandemic, with the Bermuda Rugby Football Union reverting to staging friendlies in the interim.

Teachers did not play at the weekend, with the association having returned to a three team format in the men’s league due to low numbers.

“The men were having a bit of a difficulty in regards to the just the numbers to support the four club format,” Sean Field-Lament, the BRFU president, said.

“Hopefully we‘ll do a round of three club format and then the last two rounds we can expand to a four club format.”

Meanwhile, Teachers edged Mariners 27-24 in a thrilling affair in the lone women’s game held at the weekend.

Bermuda international Corrie Cross led the charge for the victors as she ran in two tries, while Lauren Rothwell, Sherice Bashir and Christie Halliday scored one each and Jasmine Mapp added a conversion.

Apryl Jackson led the Mariners scoring with two tries. Niasia Pitcher and Lysmieri Santana scored a try each, while Lysmieri Santana kicked two conversions.
