Local rugby keeps its summer touch going

In its busiest week yet the AndroGroup Summer Touch rugby league wrapped up rounds five through seven in the space of seven days.

Teams played round five matches during the week and closing off rounds six and seven on last Saturday in the AndroGroup ‘Super Saturday.’

All of those matches made for a fully booked week of tosses and tackles on the pitch at the South Sound Rugby Club.

As always the games were played in good spirits. With the BBQ on the sideline and the Cayman Rugby Football Union bar offering refreshments throughout all the games, the players had little to complain about; except the very hot weather on Saturday of course.

Whilst teams at both the top and bottom of both division one and division two seem to have a tight grip on their league placements, the teams in the middle of the tables once again jostled for position and the games brought some pleasant surprises

In division one Maples one, Harmonic, CML Spartans and Appleby all rose in the league tables whilst UBS, KPMG 2, Digicel, Kaizer Chiefs and PWC all fell spots in the Division one rankings.

Five Nations remain unbeaten thanks to some solid wins over KPMG 2 and Digicel but it was a record breaking 15-1 victory over the shell shocked PWC that left tongues wagging in the top division.

Five Nations are now left as the only undefeated team in division one as UBS fell to KPMG two and Harmonic in straight shock defeats.

Lisa Kehoe has taken the lime-light in the league having marched ahead with six tries in division one for the undefeated Five Nations and five tries in division two for second place Walkers. Kehoe’s nearest competitor has only amassed four tries to Kehoe’s mammoth 11.

In division two Campbell’s and their star player Johnny Doak remain the talk of division two as the only team to remain undefeated after 7 games.

Elsewhere in division two Walkers, Rawlinson and Hunter and EFG Bank all climbed league places whilst Maples two, KPMG one, Deloitte two and Global Captive Management dropped spots in the table.

Rawlinson and Hunter are yet to find a proper stride having defeated Walkers to only then falter against Titan Ticklers, a team which shares the league’s bottom places with Grizz’s Old Fella’s and CIBC.

Grizz’s Old Fella’s managed a hard-earned draw against Deloitte two to earn their only real points of the tournament whilst CIBC like their fist division counterparts Ogier are yet to earn a win or a draw.

All eyes will be on the top two division two sides Campbell’s and Walkers who face off in week eight.

Games for the coming week are slated to take place over the weekend.

The AndroGroup Summer Touch league organisers have announced that their annual touch rugby dinner will be held on Friday October 2 with the theme ‘Under the Sea’ and more details on the venue and price will be on www.caymanrugby.com in the near future.
