Some of the Caribbean’s top ‘ruggers’ will invade Guyana on May 20, as Hits and Jams Entertainment team-up with the Pepsi Hornets Rugby Club to host the inaugural ‘Guyana Carnival 7’s Rugby’ at the National Park.
The one-day tournament was unveiled when the grouped held their Guyana Carnival corporate and media launch yesterday at the Guyana Marriott Hotel. The Guyana Carnival is set for May 18 – 27.
Rawle Toney, one of the principles behind the Carnival Rugby tournament, told the gathering that teams and players from Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and other Caribbean countries are all eager to make the voyage to Guyana for the highly anticipated event.
Toney further revealed that the tournament will also see players from the USA and one Brazilian recently signalled their intention to participate.
The tournament will carry a winner’s purse of US$1,400, while the team finishing second will pocket US$700. There’s also a US$100 prize for the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the tournament.
“What I can say for certain is that Jamaica is very anxious to come to Guyana and the players here are also eagerly awaiting their arrival because of it was the Jamaicans who broke Guyana’s heart and snatched their Caribbean title from them in Mexico,” Toney said.
According to the organisers, other information in relation to the tournament will be disclosed shortly.
