Storm smash Pigs

On a beautiful afternoon to kick off the 2011 Alex Alexander Memorial Cup, the Queensgate Pigs Trotters hosted the DHL Cayman Storm at the South Sound Rugby Club.

The Cayman Storm were coming off a hard fought win over the John Doak Architect Iguanas in the Heineken Charity Shield the previous week and the Pigs had completely rebuilt their side in the offseason with some exciting young talent, but their inspirational captain Doug Anderson was out with the questionable excuse of getting married and with him a number of key Pigs players and clearing their bench to field a team.

Despite making the best of their limited opportunities – the highlight a fantastic break that lead to a great team try by Pigs fly-half Alex Harvey – that showed how dangerous this young Pigs team can be, the Storm were comfortable winners, 73-10.

Later on, the John Doak Architecture Iguanas fell to their second defeat of 2011 having faltered to a well organised and powerful Krys & Associates Buccaneers team the week before.
