Cayman Rugby gears up for the “Big Game”

| 07/02/2012

week44 (247x300)_0.jpg(CRFU): Even though the Cayman Rugby domestic season is still in full flow the Cayman Rugby Football Union has its eye firmly on the horizon as the 2015 Rugby World Cup qualifiers approach. Many will need no reminder that the qualifiers for the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand opened with Cayman taking on Trinidad at the Truman Bodden stadium in George Town and again Truman Bodden will play host to what promises to be yet another big day for Cayman Rugby and quite possibly the biggest sporting spectacle Cayman will see in 2012. Cayman’s road to the Rugby World Cup starts in Kingston on 7 April when Cayman play Jamaica and continues at home on 21 April when Cayman take on Mexico. Photos Caroline Deegan

The 2011 Caribbean Championships saw Cayman defeating Jamaica at home and losing to Mexico away by 1 point! Tickets for what the Cayman Rugby Union has dubbed “Cayman Big Game 1” are available online at

With the Cayman Union expecting to sell nearly 3000 tickets, entry on the day (if any) will be CI$30 per person whilst tickets are available online now at a mere CI$15 and patrons buying online receive a 20% off -official tournament T-Shirt coupon in the mail with their tickets.

week43 (300x235).jpgWith Maples and Calder already coming on board and donating 500 youth tickets to the Big Game 1 tickets are already flying out the door and with the day starting at noon and running till 11pm with a schedule featuring local vendors, the Cayman vs. Mexico game at 4pm and an after party featuring DJ XS running till 11pm patrons will certainly not be disappointed!

Next Games at the Cayman Rugby Football Club:

Alex Alexander Memorial League Trophy 5th Round;

With the DHL Storm looking set to secure the Alex Alexander Memorial Trophy the only thing standing in their way is the Krys Global Buccaneers who know that if they can defeat the Storm this weekend and deny their opposition any bonus points then they should have a real chance at stealing the Cup with only 2 games left in the regular season.  With the John Doak Architecture Iguanas and the Queensgate Pigs Trotters now out of the running for the league trophy all their focus is building towards the DART Knockout Vase and no doubt the Pigs Trotters will be licking their lips at the prospect of picking up their first win in over a year over a faltering Iguana side.

11 February 2012
Krys Global Buccaneers vs. DHL Storm @2pm
Queensgate Pigs Trotters vs. John Doak Architecture Iguanas @4pm
