Panthers crush Yamaha Caribs 39 – 0- GDF ready to test ‘sting’ of Pepsi Hornets today

first_imgPANTHERS  Rugby Club picked up their second win in the Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU) Bounty Farm 15s tournament, crushing the Yamaha Caribs 39 – 0 yesterday at the National Park.Panthers came into the game looking for redemption after suffering a 26 – 36 loss at the hands of the  hungry-looking, Pepsi Hornets last weekend, and thanks to tries from Rondell ‘Bull’ McArthur, Godfrey Broomes, Malcolm Rhodia and Lancelot Adonis, the eventual winners raced to a 20 – 0 lead at the end of the first half.Godfrey Broomes, caught by Chronicle Sport photographer, Adrian Narine, about to score a try against Yamaha Caribs at the National Park, yesterday. Panthers defeated the Caribs 39 – 0.Theodore Henry, despite his presence, could not have helped the aged Yamaha Caribs team, who had no stops for Lloyd Anderson in the game’s second stanza.Anderson scored 17 points in the second half – three tries and a conversion – while Broomes made good of one conversion to put the Panthers tally to 39 – 0.Meanwhile, from 16:00 hrs today, in what is anticipated to be one of the biggest clash of the Bounty Farm 15s, Pepsi Hornets will look to keep their ‘sting’ in the tournament alive when they collide with the Guyana Defence Force (GDF).National Captain Ryan Gonsalves, will team up with the likes of Rickford Cummings and others, as he attempts to out-muscle a very stubborn GDF team.Last week, the Hornets had the ‘beast’ Kevin Mckenzie in their corner, but, today, with the country’s top player heading back to Australia, it will be interesting to see how Gonsalves and his troops fare against Patrick King, Avery Corbin and Dwayne Schroeder, who are the usual top performers for the Army.last_img read more
