Rugby America North Finals

first_imgGreen Machine pumped up for Mexico“WE do this all the time, we always bring it home and we are going to bring this one home.”Those were the words of the Guyana Rugby 15s team vice-captain Avery Corbin as the team departed for Mexico to battle the home side for the Rugby America North (RAN) 15s trophy.The players, who departed yesterday afternoon for Mexico City, are pumped ahead of the encounter set for Saturday, with Corbin noting that his side will be expecting a battle.He was quick, however, to praise the management and coaches of the team, specifically highlighting the work done by head coach Lawrence Adonis and his Argentine counterpart Deiego Giannantonio.“For the last two months, preparations have been good, great, especially with the Argentine coach. We will definitely be using some of what he has taught us in preparation for the game,” Corbin said.He continued, “The mood is good so far, everyone is great; everyone is bonding and we are one. It took us a while but it’s going good so far.”Meanwhile Corbin was reserved on their plan.“We plan to play tight, stay focused, keep the communication and don’t get complacent. Stick to the coach’s game plan. I’ve never played them (Mexico) in the 15s. We’ve played them in the 7s. They come running hard but once you keep tackling them, they start to break.”President of the Guyana Rugby Football Union, Peter Green, had less to say. “We are going to win,” said the president who disclosed nothing about his team’s agenda in the North American state.The team will spend the next few days getting acclimatised in the Mexican capital before Saturday’s game.last_img read more
