The Bermuda Rugby Football Union will be playing visiting Canadian rugby team Queen’s University on Saturday February 24, at National Stadium.
Bermuda will be using this opportunity to look at potential squad selection for their up-coming Rugby American North [RAN] Caribbean Championships which is due to kick off in May.
With Brian Archibald taking step back from coaching to focus on playing, Peter Lewington has taken the reigns to help steer Bermuda through the 2018 competition.
Mr Lewington said “It is an absolute honor to be asked to take up the position of head coach of the men’s national team. In years past the Men’s team has done extremely well and even won the competition and I will be looking to put Bermuda back where they belong at the top.”
With the past few years being view as development for the team Coach Lewington will be looking to showcase Bermuda’s potential in the game on Saturday.
“Under Archibald’s leadership he gave the team a great foundation for us to grow from and going into the international season we will look to continue this development,” said Lewington.
The Queen’s University Gaels have been on island since the beginning of the week and on Tuesday defeated a select club squad 74-0. The Gaels, who went undefeated in their 2017-2018 local season, will be looking to give the senior men’s team the same tough competition when they face-off tomorrow.
This year Bermuda will face tough competition in the RAN Caribbean Championships from Cayman and Trinidad in away games and equally tough competition from USA South in a their only home game.
The game begins at 4:30pm at National Stadium North Field on Saturday 24th February. For more information please visit here.
