The excitement continues today and tomorrow in the National Park when play in the GTT/GRFU First Division 15 league scrums off once again.
Today Pepsi Hornets would be looking to continue their winning trend when they take on Police falcons at 4:00 in the afternoon. Hornets are expected to field an unchanged squad against Police who are still young in the game but would be pressing hard to win their first game in the league. According to coach Troy Yhip of the Police Falcons the team would be coming with extra fire power and would not be going down without a fight.
When the league got started last weekend Hornets pulled off a major upset when they came from behind to defeat one of the top clubs Yamaha Caribs in the second quarter of the game 38-20 to announce their intention that they are going to be a force in the league.
Meanwhile, tomorrow the action is expected to be more intense when two of the most experienced teams, UG Wolves and Yamaha clash.
UG fresh from their trouncing of Police Falcon club 64-5 would be looking to extend the same to Caribs also, but Caribs led by National coach Theodore Henry would be looking to turn the tables on UG Wolves as the team is hungry to register their first points on the table.
UG’s coach Laurie Adonis stated that he expects Caribs to come strong at them but the guys are up to the challenge, he said the team would be working on several game plans to lockdown Caribs.
Games slated for both days start at 4:00 in the afternoon at the National Park Rugby field.
The GTT/GRFU League would be used as a bench mark by the Guyana Rugby Union for selection of players to the National squad for international engagements later in the year.
The four teams competing in the tournament are Yamaha Caribs, UG Wolves, Police Falcons, and Pepsi Hornets, while the tournament is sponsored by Telephone giant, GTT.
