Venue: Fatima College Ground, Port of Spain

Referee: Alasdair Robertson (Cayman Islands)

As has happened before these two nations square off for the Championship South title and a games against the Championship North winner for the title.

There is never much between these two teams and it always difficult to gauge their strengths when you don’t have both line ups available. Trinidad Tobago will have home advantage.

Last Five Encounters
07.06.2014 Guyana 15-8 in Georgetown (NACRA Carib.Champ., South)
01.06.2013 Trinidad Tobago 20-0 in Port of Spain (NACRA Carib. South R2)
02.06.2012 Guyana 20-0 in Georgetown (NACRA Carib. South R2)
28.05.2011 Guyana 22-20 in Port of Spain (NACRA Carib. South R3)
26.04.2008 Trinidad Tobago 40-24 in G.Cayman (WCQ NAWIRA B Cup, Final)

The rivalry between these two nations goes back to 1961. In that year these two and Jamaica began the Triangular Tournament which would eventually become the Caribbean Championship.

Based on this year’s results I expect T&T to win.
