St Vincent & Grenadines v Barbados in Kingstown (WCQ NACRA Round 1, South)



In last years Caribbean Championship the results below show that Barbados progressed a lot further that St Vincent. Barbados, in the tough round 3, lost to eventual winner Guyana 7-20 and also lost to Trinidad Tobago. I would expect Barbados to win comfortably.
