Under-19 squad heads to Jamaica for RAN tournament

Flying the flag: the Bermuda Under-19 squad who are competing at a Rugby Americas North Under-19 tournament in Jamaica

Bermuda will be represented at a Rugby Americas North Under-19 tournament in Jamaica, starting on Thursday.

The Bermuda squad will be competing against five other countries, and have been placed in a pool alongside Mexico and Cayman Islands.

The team will be lead by captain Faizon Augustus and also includes; Aiden Kendall, Alex Whalley, Brandon Sangster, David Cole, Devin Augustus, Devon Soto, Finn Watson, Gareth Cooper, Jacques Boonstra, Jaime Furtado, Jay Dunleavey, Khabir Dill, Kwame Naylor, Noah Botelho, Peter Komposh, Remi Cooper, Ryan Daniel, Shawn Bremar, Sylas Young and Wysdem Symonds.

Despite this being the first competitive action for two years because of the Covid pandemic, coach Chris Naylor is relishing a return to the field.

“I’m looking forward to competing for the first time in two years,” he said. “It is a bit of a leap into the unknown because of Covid and the lack of school rugby over the last couple of years.”

Naylor recognises that the pandemic has been one their largest hurdles through the preparation for the tournament but is going into the matches with a positive outlook.

“Preparation has been a little disrupted due to illness and some of the team members being overseas, but I’m confident we can do well,” he added.

Matches will be broadcast on SportsMax TV, SportsMax2 and the SportsMax App
