RUGBY FOOTBALL

BOTH TT’s men and women’s teams enjoyed a flawless day of rugby as they won all their group matches to enter today, the second and final day of the Rugby Americas North (RAN) Sevens Championships, with a clear sight at the cup.

The tournament is being staged at the Bellevue Plantation & Polo Club in St Michael, Barbados.

The men’s team, having won all their Pool D matches, are into the Cup quarterfinal against Bermuda, the runners-up of Pool C. The match is scheduled for 10.06 am.

Led by coach Larry Mendez, the men’s team opened with a 20-0 win over St Lucia, before beating St Vincent 22-10 in the second match. They rounded off a successful day with a heavy 40-0 battering of Cayman Islands.

The TT women played three matches and have one group match remaining.

They will face off against the current second placed team in the group, Jamaica, who also won all their matches thus far. That match is scheduled for 9.44 am today.

The winner will meet the runner-up of the second group in the first women’s Cup semifinal.

Carlton Felix’s women’s team started off with a 42-0 victory over Bahamas, then followed with a 78-0 demolition of Curacao, which turned out to be the joint biggest margin of victory on the day.

Finally, they defeated Bermuda 34-0 in their third fixture.

TT squads:

Men’s team: Nigel Ballington, Stefan Cooksammy, Shakeel Dyte, Keston Earle, Shakir Flemming, Christopher Hudson, Wayne Kelly, Leon Pantor, Joseph Quashie (captain), Agboola Silverthorn, Sefanaia Waqa.

A few fans stopped me to ask what I thought about the West In­dies' per­for­mance so far in the se­ries against In­dia in both the T20's and the ODIs.

2019 Pan Amer­i­can Games

The Pan Amer­i­can Games closed on Sun­day but T&T is still cel­e­brat­ing its his­toric per­for­mance, claim­ing 13 medals, the most ever.

I happen to be initially browsing but having caught my attention, I then perused thoroughly, the 2018 Oxford Business Group country report on Trinidad and Tobago.  There were a number of perespectives, snap shots and overviews written. If one wanted to get a well researched and documented overview of the economic and business landscape within the twin Island Republic.

31 July is CANOC day. A message was sent out. That it barely registered or caught the attention of sport stakeholders in the Caribbean is an opportunity not a slight. CANOC must embrace the opportunity to heighten awareness and engage in enhanced outreach to provide information about the organisation.

It is cold in Lima, Peru, host city of the 2019 Pan Am Games. In fact, it is winter here in the South American nation.

With the one-year countdown to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games officially underway, the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee, (TTOC) has announced that TTO athletes will benefit from a pre-games training camp at the Japan Athlete Training Center Osumi, in Osaki Town, Kagoshima Prefecture, as part of Japan’s Host Town Initiative.
