Round 1 Review
Duhaney Park RedSharks barely survived a rampaging Caribbean Martime University Spartans side (22-18) and Kingston Central Hounds were even luckier against Liguanea Dragons (20-18).
“The Fun Bit”
Stand out players on the day were Delano “New Kid” Jarrett (Spartans), Demetrius “Fireman” Campbell (Dragons), Oshane “Stepping god” Eddie (Hounds) and Stefan “Big Shark” Lounds (Redsharks). All got on the score board several times in their respective runs.
We hear word too that Antonio “The Destroyer” Baker was up to his usual worst, knocking over defenders left right and center. Sure glad I wasn’t playing.
The Serious Bit
We’ve solicited comments from members of the 4 teams for this week’s games and this is what they have to say:
Roy Calvert -RedSharks Assistant Coach: ” Our match against Dragons will be a good indication of where we are after the Christmas break. We are really looking forward to it.
Adrian Hall, Secretary of the Dragons and Player: ” We expect a hard running game. There is an intense rivalry with these guys stemming from last season when we went undefeated until meeting them in the finals. It should be a fun game though and entertaining for the fans. We will hit the ground running and put the Sharks under pressure early on. We hope to dominate and be victorious”
Stephan “Gibbs” Williams, Founder, Coach and Player at CMU Spartans: ” We hope to push Hounds to the edge. We expect a tough game as both teams want the win. Its going to be another spectacular game.”
Anthony Findlay, who like many in the Hounds team is still in High School said: “There’s not much going in our favour right now and we will have to work extra hard to secure a win, but we will do our best”.
Maritime’s close game with Duhaney Park was really an eye-opener. To think the most dominant team in Club rugby league was pushed so close by Maritime, who are still new to the game..wow..it was refreshing. We hear word that RedSharks was only saved… by the mercenary services of the Stepping God and the Destroyer….we will say no more.
