BUILDING CHEMISTRY: The Jamaican rugby league national team continue to improve

THE JAMAICAN rugby league national team are preparing for their fixture against Canada on Sunday, July 31 in Markham, Ontario.

The squad completed a successful camp at the GC Foster College which has been at the forefront of revolutionising the sport on the island, providing the Jamaican Rugby League Association (JRLA) with much needed support, especially in facility and community development.

Canada will attempt to avenge their 32-12 defeat to Jamaica the last time the two teams met in the USA in November 2010.

Team manager Romeo Monteith, is pleased with the preparations.

“I think we have done well with the resources we have at our disposal, the camp at GC Foster was certainly a good way to get the team to build team chemistry and the players are eager to perform well on Sunday,” said Monteith.

“The tactical awareness of the players is improving, there is a lot of pride and passion in this squad, it’s the first time a travelling national team will contain only domestic based players and so we all want to do well to showcase the strengths of our local game.”

Leading try scorer in the Kingston championship with 15, Tyronie Rowe is expected to spearhead the Jamaican attack.
