Buccs dominate gritty Iguanas

The Advance Fire and Plumbing Buccaneers sit proudly atop the Alex Alexander Memorial League table after a solid victory against the John Doak Architecture Iguanas.  

Even though the Iguanas held their own in most facets of the game, the Buccaneers back line had a fairly easy time cutting though the Iguanas defense at the rugby club in South Sound on Saturday.  

The likes of Joel Clark and Dow Travers made easy work of the Iguanas and scored at will with Dave Clancy ably slotting the extra points where necessary.  

The Iguanas did recover some respect, having scored one try, but will look to put a poor opening weekend behind them when they take on the Queensgate Pigs Trotters, a team they have already secured one win against this domestic rugby season 

Buccaneers won 42-7. 

The day’s early game was a cracker for spectators as the Fidelity Cayman Storm overcame the Queensgate Pigs Trotters. The game looked to be all one-way traffic for Cayman Storm as fullback Blake James single-handedly put 12 points on the scoreboard. The Pigs Trotters came alive in the second half with 12 points of their own to even the scores.  

The Pigs took the lead with an unconverted try before the Storm notched up three points from the boot of Josh Brown. The Pigs looked like they could have held on for the slim two-point win, but a final surge from Cayman Storm saw two more tries in the closing stages of the game to secure a much-needed opening day win 27-17.
