GAME 1 : All Stars 32 v Hurricanes 5

The team management is very proud of the outstanding performances of the girls’ team in their first competitive outing and the coming to fruition of this historic and ground breaking tour. The team’s first focus was application of their skills learnt over the last few months. The team was very focused and played well in all three games. We are pleased as well that there are no major injury concerns and they feel a great sense of pride from doing well. We believe that this is a great foundation to build future girls teams and more so it is a great promotion for the sport of rugby for women in Trinidad and Tobago and the region.
The tour management expresses its profound gratitude to the following who have funded and supported the tour - the Schools Rugby League, the Sport Company (SPORTT), The Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee, Aldoz Investments, A’s Travel Services and the parents of the athletes.
