TTRFU Launches Its 2017 Rugby Season With The Annual Ruggerama Tournament

The Trinidad and Tobago Rugby Football Union (TTRFU) domestic season kicks-off on Saturday, June 17, 2017, with the Annual Austin Davis Memorial Ruggerama Tournament at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium in Marabella.

All teams registered with the TTRFU will compete in the tournament which commences at 10:00 a.m. sharp. Games will be of 20 minutes duration, 10 minutes per half.

This tournament will help in the sharpening process for the Trinidad and Tobago National Rugby Teams. The Senior Women’s 10s and Men’s Under 19s Teams are scheduled to participate in the 2017 Rugby Americas North (RAN) Men’s U19 & Women’s 10s Tournament in Miami, Florida, while the Women’s Under 19 Team will be taking part in the 2017 Commonwealth Youth Games (CYG) in Nassau, Bahamas.  Both tournaments are scheduled to take place during the month of July 2017.

The TTRFU is embarking on an aggressive drive in collaboration with the Rugby Americas North (RAN) and World Rugby to raise the profile of the game, both domestically and internationally.

President Leslie Figaro, noted that rugby is the fastest growing sport in the world and is therefore ideally positioned to play an integral part in assisting the Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs (MSYA) and the Ministry of Health in their drive to ensure that Trinidad and Tobago reduces obesity in young people and assists them in achieving their personal development through sport.

As such, we are inviting all National Sporting Organisations (NSOs), the rugby fraternity and the public to join us in the launch of the 2017 Rugby Season to raise awareness of these issues.

Defending champions of this tournament Caribs Rugby Football Club, will be going all out to repeat at this tournament, in honour of one of the pioneers of organised rugby in Trinidad and Tobago.

It will be an action packed and entertaining day which should not be missed. Cover charge is $10.00 for adults and children are free!

Patrons are advised that ABSOLUTELY NO GLASS BOTTLES WILL BE ALLOWED onto the compound. We IMPLORE you to observe this rule.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium in Marabella.
