John Doak Architecture Iguanas are the current Alex Alexander Memorial Trophy Champions.

The Heineken Charity Shield which was decided back in December (and won by the John Doak Architecture Iguanas RFC over the previous holders the Advance Fire and Plumbing Buccaneers RFC) officially marks the start the Rugby XV’s season but the Premier, and most coveted trophy is the Alex Alexander Memorial.

The current holders of the Alexander Memorial are the Iguanas RFC but the Buccaneers, Queensgate Pigs Trotters and Fidelity Bank Cayman Storm will be looking to unseat the current champs.

Winning the league is no easy feat as teams will suffer from injuries, absent players and of course hard hitting rugby and with an evenly balanced league it will be anyone’s guess as to who will march out to beearly favorites.

Games are free to watch at the South Sound Rugby Ground or online at www.caymanrugbytv.com
