Buccs must squash Pigs for title

The Advance Fire and Plumbing Buccaneers will be looking to secure the Alex Alexander Memorial Trophy for the first time since 2009 when they take on the incumbent champions Queensgate Pigs Trotters this weekend at the South Sound Rugby ground.  

The Buccaneers made it four wins in a row when they defeated the Fidelity Cayman Storm 22-13 last Saturday.  

The performance was by no means convincing with the Storm making inroads against the Buccaneers defense and both sides suffering sin bins during the game.  

At one stage, the fixture was 13-a-side with so many cards being handed out by the match official. The Queensgate Pigs Trotters were handed a lifeline in a hard-fought game over the John Doak Architecture Iguanas.  

It was a hat-trick of tries from Keswick Wright that kept his team in top gear and although the score line didn’t show how close the game was throughout the Pigs Trotters won’t mind a second win over the Iguanas this season 40-23.  

The bonus point win for the Pigs Trotters brings them within touching distance of the league leading Buccaneers and a winner will be decided on Saturday.  

The Iguanas’ only victory this season came against Cayman Storm and unless the Iguanas repeat the feat and secure a bonus point, a final win will make little difference to the Iguanas’ league standings but the game should prove to be another great fixture as the two teams have a long standing rivalry.
