Buccs rolled and crushed Iguanas

The Krys Global Buccaneers defeated the John Doak Architecture Iguanas at the Cayman Rugby Club to earn their first trophy of the 2011 season and yet again, end the Iguanas hopes of winning their first ever double.

The Iguanas, who won the 2011 Alex Alexander Memorial League Trophy were marginal favourites going into the game but with three starting players missing from the line up and a string of injuries early in the game the Buccaneers were able to dominate proceedings for the majority of the match, two weeks ago.

Albeit, the teams being on equal pegging after 20 minutes 10-10 the Buccaneers strolled in the points thereafter as the Iguanas fought to stay in contention.

With Morgan Hayward kicking for goal and centre partnership of John Murphy and Chris Palmer pressuring the Iguana back line throughout, the win was in little doubt for the Buccaneers.

The only question was by what margin would the Buccaneers win by. The Buccaneers eventually ran out deserved 48-20 winners.

With three out of four teams taking home silverware in 2011 the Cayman Rugby XVs season ended on a happy note for the league organisers and fans and the Cayman Union now switches gears into international mode as the Caribbean Championships come to Cayman on Saturday with the first round of the competition, against the always difficult to beat Jamaica who are always well supported by expats. Kick off is 4pm.

The Jamaicans tend to be well schooled, fast and physical whereas Cayman rely on their superior experience and technique.

Derek Haines, president of the rugby association in the Cayman Islands, said: “We’re very much looking forward to this match. It has been a little while since we had any international competition here so it is a welcome return. It is obviously a must-win situation and we anticipate a lively game.

“Cayman has prepared as well as they possibly could again and it should be a great match.”
