Bajans go down in rugby

Barbados’ juniors fought gamely but in the end went down 36-8 to the visiting and better drilled Wisbech Grammar School out of England in rugby action at the Garrison savannah on Wednesday.

Wisbech Grammar School, which has a long history in rugby, and finished as runners-up at the Manchester International Sevens Festival last month, two months after winning the prestigious Lewis Booth Memorial Trophy, were in control of the game from the start.

City earlier in the month, were subjected to some stifling defence and often failed to make inceptions on the swift Wisbech line.

Barbados scored a try thanks to the highly promising Christian Parris, who was the youngest member on the Under-19 team that played in Mexico City.

Also in Wednesday’s line-up was kicker Brandon Walcott, who was also part of the Barbados junior team in Mexico City.

The action continues tomorrow at the Garrison Savannah at 2 p.m.
