Guyana 48, Barbados 22 in Georgetown (Caribbean Champ., South Div.1)
Mexico 50, USA South 25 in Mexico City (Caribbean Champ., North Div.1)
St Vincent G. 24, Curacao 24 in Wilhelmstadt (Caribbean Champ., South Div.2)
Bermuda 56, Turks & Caicos Islands 3 in Hamilton (Carib. Champ., North Div.2)
The major upset of the day was Mexico’s win over the USA South side. Not only that but the newly promoted side whacked on 50 points against a disappointing USA team.
Guyana looked a champion side as they proved too strong for Barbados at home. This is the team that won the competition last year.
St Vincent arrived late in Wilhelmstadt and without their luggage. So apparently no team shirts and no boots. Well something went right for them because they held the home side to a very respectable score.
Bermuda, relegated from the Championship league last year were too strong for neighbours Turks and Caicos Islands.
The next round is on March 21.
Cayman Islands are due to begin their Championship campaign and are due in the USA to play USA South. Trinidad and Tobago also opens their Championship programme away to Barbados. St Vincent & Grenadines are due to Play St Lucia in a Southern Cup fixture whilst also a Souther Cup match will see the British Virgin Islands play Curacao. Rugby in the sun!
