All Games Played 07.03.2015

The Caribbean Cup is played for in two divisions. The top division, called the Championship, is played in two Zones; North and South. The second division is called The Cup and is also divided between north and south.

The two Championship winners play off for the final. The last placed side in each Championship zone has to play the winner of their respective Cup winning side.

In 2014 Mexico won by default against Bermuda to move to the Championship. Barbados defeated Curacao 29-0 to retain its place in the Championship. Guyana defeated USA South 30-27 in the final.

Referee: David Sherwin (Cayman Islands)

Venue: Universidad Iberoamericana Campus Santa Fe

This will be Mexico’s biggest game to date. Mexico were promoted to the Championship level after Bermuda defaulted their promotion/relegation game last year. This will be a huge step up for the Mexicans.

Mexico caused a bit of a stir when they defeated USA South back in 2011 but lost heavily to the Panthers away back in 2013.

USA South will be champing at the bit following their surprise defeat at home to Guyana in last year’s Caribbean Championship final. Despite playing away and playing at altitude I expect they will just be able to do enough to record a win.

Turks and Caicos Islands v Bermuda in Hamilton (Cup, North)

'Calling all Turks and Caicos Islanders in Bermuda!

Get out and support the TCI next Saturday at the Bermuda National Stadium against Bermuda'

Venue: National Sports Centre

Referee: Ryan Hinckson (Guyana)

This will be a tough assignment for the visitors. They suffered at the hands of Mexico away last season. Mexico replaced Bermuda who were relegated to the Cup level. There was not a great deal between Mexico and Bermuda when they met last season.

Bermuda, on home soil, will be out to make the point that they should be at the Championship level. They are confident that for the first time in three years they have a full squad.

These two nations have never met before in a rugby test match.

St Vincent & Grenadines v Curacao in Wilhelmstadt (Cup, South)

Venue: Blue Bay Curacao Golf and Beach Resort

Referee: Toño Magallanes (Mexico)

Comments from Arthur Hogesteger (Curacao RFU). Edited

Our main players are Robert Perry, player coach and fly-half, Curtleyson Martis, winger and top try scorer for curacao. He will be the first player to reach 10 full international caps for Curacao, as rugby is only played since 2009. Veteren Marius van Noord will lead the pack, he is expected to dominate in the line-outs.There are two new caps with Eelco ten Molder on the flank as the rising star.

Our expectations is that the Cup Pool South will be tough this year. St Vincent brought in a coach from outside to build their team, and with St Lucia and BVI in a close game last weekend. We look forward to close and exiting games. We do hope to be able to play a promotion/relegation game versus either Barbados/Trinidad Tobago/Guyana in September 2015.
