WELCOME TO THE 2017 RUGBY BARBADOS WORLD 7s!
The first annual RBW 7s was held in Holetown, Barbados over the weekend of 10th & 11th December 2016 in perfect conditions, with clear blue skies and cooling breezes coming off the nearby Caribbean Sea. Ten teams in each of the Men’s and Women’s Divisions played in two groups (3 games each) on Day One to decide which would progress to the Championship and Plate draws on Day Two. The standard of rugby was high from the outset and no quarter was given in any game played on either of the two pitches. Teams from Scotland, England, Europe, Canada and USA including international players from all over the world joined their Caribbean counterparts fighting tooth and nail against one another. With prize money, plus beautiful mahogany trophies by local artist Reginald Medford and Samsung S7 handsets as additional prizes, the competitions were fierce, to say the least! The post-tournament party at Old Jammin Inn in the St. Lawrence Gap carried on into the early hours of Monday morning, followed by a leisurely Mount Gay Rum & Banks Beer cruise up the west coast aboard Tiami for those still standing in the afternoon. In all, this was an exceptional beginning, thanks to all the players, administrators, supporters, partners and helpers who made it possible. Now on to the 9th & 10th December 2017 bigger and better RUGBY BARBADOS WORLD 7s……..!
