The St Lucia senior male team romped home to a comfortable victory in the Carnival Rugby Tournament held on Saturday at the Corinth Playing Field. Three other teams were involved in the competition namely St Vincent, a team from the UK under the auspices of Caribbean Coaching and the St Lucia B team.

In the preliminary round, St Lucia defeated all of the other teams to top the table with the maximum nine points followed by Caribbean Coaching with six points, St Vincent with three points and St Lucia B in the cellar with no points. This set up the finals between St Lucia and Caribbean Coaching, while St Lucia B and St Vincent were destined to meet to decide the third place team.

When the teams met in the third place game, St Vincent overwhelmed St Lucia B by a margin of 38 points to five. Scorers for St Vincent were Delroy Diamond, Phillip Alvis, Godfrey Matthews, Leonard Matthews, Justin Joyles, Guy Hadley and Recardo Dallaway.

St Lucia’s lone try was scored by National Under 19 player Jamal Naitram.

In the final, the rampant St Lucia side amassed a total of 54 points while Caribbean Coaching was only able to score two converted tries(12 points) in reply. Scorers for St Lucia were Jerry Charles, Vitus Jn Pierre, Lenford Eugene, Ervin Joseph and Stephen ‘Jack’ Marquis.

Caribbean Coaching’s points came from a try each by Henry Snow and Charles Turland and conversions from Joe Page.

The St Lucia Rugby Football Union would like to profusely thank all the teams that participated in the tournament especially St Vincent who travelled for 12 hours across the Caribbean Sea to be in St Lucia for the event. Thanks must also be given to LIME for its donations of shirts for the officials, water bottles, rags etc.
