Today [July 13] the Bermuda Rugby Football Union [BRFU] announced the National U18 Women’s Rugby training squad for the 2017 Commonwealth Youth Games [CYG] which will take place in Nassau, Bahamas between July 19th-23th.
Bermuda was invited to compete in the CYG following England’s withdrawal from the tournament only 2 months ago. They will face medal contenders Australia, Canada, South Africa and Wales, as well as regional rivals Trinidad & Tobago in the 3-day, 6 team tournament.
“Receiving the invitation to participate at the CYG is truly an honour and also a testament to the ambition of the Bermuda women’s rugby program. It is also the perfect opportunity to celebrate the hard-work, dedication and determination of an exceptional group of young rugby players, who are the future of Bermuda’s Women’s Rugby program,” said BRFU President, Sean Field-Lament.
