The St Lucia senior male rugby team will be participating in the group stage of the 2014 NACRA 15-a-side tournament scheduled to commence on May 10, 2014. St Lucia is grouped with Curacao, BVI and St Vincent with matches scheduled for May 10 in Curacao against the host, Tortolla in the BVI against BVI on June 8 and at home on June 21 against St Vincent.
The winner of the group will play against Barbados for a spot in the second stage of the tournament on a home and away basis which also involves Guyana and Trinidad in the south. The winner of this stage will emerge as champions of the south and will play against the northern champs to crown the 2014 North America and Caribbean Rugby Champions.
St Lucia will be depending on its speedy and elusive back consisting of Jerry Charles, Lenford Eugene, Gideon Antoine and others to baffle the opposition and score to win the match for St Lucia. However, this may be easier said than done since the opposing teams will expect this ploy and will seek to nullify this tactic by closing off the spaces and swarming the St Lucia attacks. This make for some interesting games with a lot at stake for the winner of the group.
Members of the St Lucia team will be drawn from: Wedrel St Clair, Jerry Charles, Lenford Eugene, Junior Hunter, Gideon Antoine, Vitus JnPierre, Zayvon Augustin, Elvin Joseph, Ervin Joseph, Flavien Gabriel, Roger Butcher, Cyriacus Isidore, Colvis Samuels, Henson Hunte, Uranus Denis, Larry Eugene, Alex Brown, Narjym Edward, Arthur Joseph, Vince Joseph, Johnson Berrance, Imran William, Stephon ‘Jack’ Marquis and Shaun Alcindor
