On 20th May 2017, the LUCELEC Michael Mathurin Rugby Challenge will be concluded with a tens match between Sir Arthur Lewis Community College Rugby Team and VBCC Stingers Rugby Team. The winner takes home the $500 cash prize plus the championship trophy. The match will be held at La Clery Playing Field from 6:00 pm.
This will be followed by an exciting male tens exhibition match between a veterans team and an amateur team. The team of veteran rugby players will be lacing up their boots once again to play against a younger generation of players.
This is the first time in St. Lucia that a veterans rugby team comes together to play an exhibition match. It will be a showcase of old school tactics versus the newbie hype. Saint Lucia Rugby Football Union is looking forward not only to the exciting match up. The Union is hoping that this will rekindle the passion for the sport in the players both young and old. The Union plans to continue hosting these matches and envisions the possibility of developing a mentorship program among the veterans and the younger players.
