Cayman Islands v Jamaica in Kingston (WCQ Americas-NACRA R1)
Referee: Keith Hodgkins, (Bermuda)
Cayman Islands accounted for Jamaica in last year’s Caribbean Championship. Jamaica has the advantage of having already played a test match this year (against Mexico 2 weeks ago) and also the home ground advantage. I expect Caymans to have the edge over the local team.
16.04.2011 Cayman Is 36-24 in Grand Cayman (Caribbean Champ., North R1)
26.04.2008 Cayman Is 11-10 in Grand Cayman (NAWRA B, Shield Final)
08.06.2005 Cayman Is 18-8 in Nassau (WCQ Americas, Caribbean, North)
28.02.2004 Cayman Is 41-14 in Grand Cayman (Mayfair Cup)
08.11.2002 Cayman Is 32-27 in Montego Bay (Mayfair Cup)
Jamaica has never defeated Cayman Islands, the first game being in 2001.
