Pan­thers Club routs Po­lice in Bounty Farm XV’s rugby

Stabroek News Sunday - - SUNDAY SPORT -

Fresh off back-to-back sevens club cham­pi­onships, the Pan­thers rugby out­fit switched seam­lessly into the longer for­mat of the game and de­mol­ished the Po­lice Fal­cons 67-7 in the opener of the Bounty Farm XV’s yes­ter­day at the Na­tional Park.

Tries by Daniel An­der­son (three), Lloyd An­der­son (two), Osei McKen­zie (two), skip­per Ron­dell McArthur (one), Del­mar Headley (one) and Jac­ques Archibald (one) put paid to the ef­forts of the Guyana’s new­est and most in­ex­pe­ri­enced side. God­frey Broomes who buried a penalty kick also teamed up with Lloyd An­der­son to nail two con­ver­sions apiece. Tel­roy McAl­mont also recorded a con­ver­sion.

Akino Jones (try) and Daniel DeAbreu (con­ver­sion) were the play­ers on the score­sheet for the Fal­cons.

The Pan­thers who won the GRFU and the Tro­phy Stall 7s cham­pi­onships in suc­ces­sion over the past two weeks, showed no mercy to the hap­less Fal­cons rout­ing the op­po­si­tion with rel­a­tive ease, record­ing try after try.

The tour­na­ment con­tin­ues to­day at 16:00hrs with GDF fac­ing the Caribs.

Notes: THE BOUNTY FARM XV’s TOUR­NA­MENT runs un­til Novem­ber 12, with five teams play­ing two rounds of matches. The teams, mainly men, will play 20 matches on the week­ends.

The fe­males will play Sevens games start­ing next week.

The Bounty Farm 15s ti­tle was last won by the for­mer UG Wolves, (now the Pan­thers) a team which is coached by Lau­rie Ado­nis. (Em­mer­son Camp­bell)
