World Cup bid in their hands

With Cayman rugby’s only hope of continuing its 2015 Rugby World Cup Qualification lying in the balance after the shock 19-18 loss to Jamaica in Kingston two weeks ago, national coach Brad Cowdroy has named a much changed side to face Mexico on Saturday at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

Up front, Paul Parker will earn his second start at tight head against the Mexicans with first choice Mark Stabler being unavailable through injury. JS de Jager regains his spot at hooker and in the back row Ben Blair returns to No.8.

A much changed back line sees Simon Crompton take over from Ross Connerton at scrum-half and the speedy Tom Mann earning a place on the wing.

On the subs bench Peter de Vere makes a comeback from injury to bolster the Cayman front row whilst Camilo Andres will have a chance to earn his first cap for Cayman if he features during the game. If Cayman beat Mexico at home and progress to the next round of World Cup Qualification they will face Bermuda away next month.
