Bermuda fly out on tour to Gibraltar
Fresh from being crowned Caribbean champions, Bermuda men’s rugby team are continuing to test themselves by flying out for a tour to England and Gibraltar.
Bermuda secured the title they have not won since 2012 by beating Guadeloupe 33-10 in the Rugby Americas North Championship final at North Field, National Sports Centre on Saturday.
Instead of resting on their laurels and enjoying a well-earned break, the national team have flown off island to take part in a tour of England and Gilbraltar.
In England, Jamie Barnwell’s team will take on Crowborough RFC, who are based in East Sussex and play in the London Two South East Division in a warm-up match.
Bermuda will then make the short trip over to Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory and headland, on Spain’s south coast.
“We reached our target in being crowned Caribbean champions, but we are already preparing for how we can keep on improving and push on further,” Barnwell said.
“Part of that progression is a tour to England and then Gibraltar.
“We’ll be playing Crowborough in our first game which will be a warm-up really for the main game against Gibraltar, so we’ve got some more big games ahead of us.”
