Cayman Islands retain Caribbean U19 title

| 14/07/2009

(IRB): Cayman Islands made the most of home advantage to retain their Caribbean Under 19 Championship crown with a 18-8 victory over Mexico in the final on Saturday. In a repeat of last year’s final in Barbados – when Cayman Islands won 22-3 to qualify for the IRB Junior World Rugby Trophy 2009 in Kenya – the hosts once again came out on top with Robbie Cribb kicking five penalties after Joel Clark’s early drop goal. The ever-improving Mexicans, who had scored three late tries to beat Trinidad & Tobago 22-14 in the semi finals, had only trailed 6-3 at half-time but Cribb’s reliable boot put Cayman Islands too far ahead before Pascal Nadaud’s late consolation try.
