The winner of this match will play Curacao in the North Zone final to played at a later date.

St Lucia appeared on the international rugby scene in 2011 after a 6-year break. They lost 12-31 to Barbados in Round 1 of the South Zone playoff. Last year they played Curacao in a friendly at home and won 43-19.

British Virgin Islands started playing test rugby again in 2010 after what would appear a decade away from the test scene. In that year the lost 17-26 to a Barbados XV. In 2011 they took part in NACRA Championship for the first time. They defeated St Vincent and Grenadines 25-13 and then lost 13-19 to Barbados in Round 2 and were knocked out of the competition. They did not appear in the 2012 NACRA Championship.
