The Guyana Rugby Football Union, GRFU, has shortlisted 34 players for the upcoming Rugby Americas North (RAN) Sevens tournament, scheduled for October 16–17 in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The squad listed for training is mostly made of newcomers with a few seasoned campaigners such as former National captain Ryan Gonsalves along with Dwayne Schroeder, Jamal Angus, Godfrey Broomes and Rondel McArthur.
The Guyana ‘Green Machine’ will be sharpening their skills to butt heads with archrivals Jamaica, who bested them in the last tournament in 2019.
This year’s tournament is a qualifier for the World Rugby Challenger Series, in 2022.
The GRFU has already requested permission to commence training from the National Covid-19 Task Force and is awaiting a response.
The GRFU remains committed to observing the COVID-19 protocols and also to the COVID-19 vaccination campaign.
