Women continue to dish out the pain

Local rugby continues to show that women are not necessarily the weaker sex.

The inaugural women’s ten-a-side rugby championship started on Saturday February 23. Games took place from 1pm-2:30pm at the South Sound Rugby Club.

The championship features three teams: Buccaneers, Iguanas, and Trotters. All were in action on Saturday.

The results were: game 1, Buccaneers 5 vs Trotters 10 and game 2, Trotters 31 vs Iguanas 5. Another match between Buccaneers and Iguanas was cancelled and will be rescheduled for another date.

At the end of play, Trotters is in first place with 9 points having a record of 2 wins and no losses. Buccaneers are in second with 1 point at a record of 0 wins and 1 loss and Iguanas is in third with 0 points having 0 wins and 1 loss.

The next round of games for the teams will be on Saturday 29 March. Game 1 will see Buccaneers take on Iguanas at 1pm, game 2 features Buccaneers at Trotters at 1:30pm and finally game 3 Trotters against Iguanas at 2pm.

The tournament will serve as preparation for upcoming international fixtures.
