The St Lucia senior male rugby team played unbeaten to emerged champions of the 7-a-side tournament help at the Gros Islet Playing Field last night. Four teams participated in the opening event of the packed 2015 calendar of events of the St Lucia Rugby Football Union. They were St Lucia, Zandolie, Sir Arthur Lewis and the sailors from the visiting warship; HMS Severn.
Team St Lucia commenced its rout by overwhelming SALCC and followed this victory with comprehensive wins over HMS Severn, 68 – 0 and Zandolie, 24 – 7. HMS Severn emerged runners up with two wins and one defeat while SALCC, comprising of students from the ation’s premier learning institution, placed third ahead of Zandolie.
On the distaff side, SALCC went down 24 – 10 and 24 – 0 to the more experienced St Lucia team. However the scores did not tell the full story. The SALCC team played extremely well and there were some magnificent performances from some of the SALCC female players who only just started playing a few short months ago.
