WRC 2021 Day 3 Round Up

From The Royal Gazette...

Bermuda’s World Rugby Classic title challenge suffered a major setback after going down to a 24-10 defeat to Lions Legend tonight.

Having overcome Classic Canada 20-5 in their opening encounter, Bermuda headed into the match aiming to make it back-to-back victories, emulating France Classic Rugby, to set up a mouthwatering championship decider between the sides on Saturday.

However, it was not to be as Jamie Barnwell’s side were left to rue a lack of tactical nous and in-game management at crucial moments against their greater experienced opponents, who twice came back from behind during the first half to hold a 14-10 advantage at the interval.

Building on that momentum, the Lions further asserted their dominance after the restart, scoring a further two tries, while also holding Bermuda at bay, to claim victory and bounce back from their opening day 22-0 defeat to France.

The result leaves France are firmly in the ascendancy, who now only have to avoid a heavy defeat to Bermuda in the final game to clinch the title.
