Cayman to defend against Canadian invasion

The Cayman Islands national team will begin the Diamond Law Associates International Series of matches against the Canada Under-21 national team and the Bermuda national team at the South Sound pitch with the Canada match at 5pm today.

Matches will continue throughout the next week with Cayman playing Bermuda on Sunday, 30th April, at 5pm, Bermuda plays Canada U21 on Tuesday, May 2nd, at 5pm, Canada U21 faces a joint Cayman and Bermuda select team on May 3rd and then the full Cayman National XV will play the full Canada National U21 XV on Saturday, May 6th at 4pm.

Cayman will be using the matches to identify new national team potential talent for future development as well as an opportunity to test itself against world class opposition, Cayman Islands national coach Richard Adams said.

‘Thanks to the three year sponsorship of Diamond Law Associates we have been offered the opportunity to bring in world class rugby teams each year to help us develop our fifteen a side game,’ said Adams, ‘this means that we can test potential players at the very highest levels and see where they may need further development.’
