What a start for the Men’s Rugby 7s team, who took home two wins in their opening two games of these Youth Games. Hosted at the Shaw Park Sports Complex in Tobago, the boys were in for a tough day, with high temperatures and new competition.
Kicking off against Canada in their opening game, the team came away with a 24-12 win, and showcasing a good solid performance against a competitive opponent. The heat in Tobago has presented challenges with many of our athletes, who are not used to this sort of temperature, however the team remained focussed and got the job done.
Up first in the afternoon session, the team faced Jamaica, who are a team known for their speed and agility, however the Scottish boys matched this in spades, producing a dominant performance, winning 52-0 and securing the second win of the day.
Tomorrow, on Day 3 of the Trinbago 2023, the Rugby 7s team face two tough opponents in Fiji at 9am (2pm UK time) and South Africa at 1pm (6pm UK time).
