Cayman women are Caribbean Rugby Champs

| 23/08/2010

(Cayman RFU): The National Cayman Rugby women’s team won the Caribbean Rugby Championship with a stunning 49 – 0 display against Bahamas in the final of the week long competition. It is the first time that Cayman has won the tournament after finishing second in Barbados last year. The Bahamians were simply not able to stem the flow of nine tries scored by Cayman as Loletta Hanna (3), Lisa Bird (2), Lisa Kehoe, Rowena Lawrence & Emily Davies all crossed for Cayman scores. Lisa Kehoe controlled the game from fly half from the start and with the excellent ball produced by the forward pack she was able to set  all Cayman back row players, as well as center Loletta Hanna on devastating runs through the Bahamians central defense time andtime again.

    I believe the word center should be spelled centre

    CNS: It would if we were writing it but this is aggregated from another site which apparently uses American spelling. It’s a question of choice, not right or wrong.

      Err, do you think you could spare a moment to congratulate the girls while you are pondering as to the correct spelling of centre?

      *rolls eyes*

        I have congratulated them personally… which I am sure they appreciated more than a comment on a news blog…..

          Darling, me too.  But if you know them personally it now surprises me even more that you would make a complaint about americanised spelling in a topic that was clearly set up to enable us to congratulate the girls for this fine achievement.

      I believe you should be doing something more constructive than spell proofing blogs on CNS!  Get a life!

        Ahem. . .

        I would not wish to labour the point, but that is a speciality of mine and I am glad that I plough that furrow alone no longer.  I tend to let US spellings go as it causes too much of a furore to catalogue them.  However I do tend to baulk at "check" when used to describe a financial instrument.  That really sticks in my oesophagus.

      Sorry CNS but you are wrong.  The word ‘center’ in the post refers to the rugby player’s position.  As rugby  and the laws of the game were formed in England, the spelling has to be ‘CENTRE’.  

      If the word were referring to the middle of the pitch you might just get away with it but as it stands you are wrong.

      CNS: Once again … We didn’t write the article. It was aggregated from the Cayman Islands Rugby Football Union site (follow the link). The article was written by them. Not us. You are saying that the club members do not know how to spell the positions of their own sport. Perhaps you should take this argument up with them.
