(CRFU): New Zealand rugby legend Doug Howlett took to the stage in Cayman at the weekend as the guest speaker at the 44th Annual Players Dinner of the Cayman Islands Rugby Union. The night was a chance for local clubs and national squads to cap off a successful season in the style of a black tie event at the Marriott. Howlett celebrated the players on their performances for club and country with an awards presentation. An extremely encouraging sign for the future of rugby in Cayman and its aspirations to continue to grow and succeed was that six out of the six players awards were awarded to young Caymanian players.

Voted by peers, players and coaches the awards went to the following people:
