During the 1990s and first decade of this century Rugby slowly developed with the involvement of several touring teams from foreign countries such as Canada and France. These teams helped to provide both coaching and much needed equipment. With no olympic support at this time, Cuban rugby had no financial backing from the government with teams often playing under precarious conditions with no changing rooms, goal posts and even no markings on the pitch. In 2002 the Cuban Rugby Union organized the Cuban Rugby Championship for the first time, with both a 15 a side and sevens tournament.
First IRB Sanctioned Tournament
In 2010 Havana hosted an 8-team International Rugby Sevens tournament, the first IRB sanctioned tournament to be performed in the country. The tournament was a big success, receiving coverage from the national press—introducing many Cubans to the sport who previously knew nothing of the game. The Cuban national team beat Mexico, showing a big improvement in playing standards on the Island but then lost to a US select side named Atlantis 0-15. The tournament also featured 3 Cuban development sides.

Fresh from being crowned Caribbean champions, Bermuda men’s rugby team are continuing to test themselves by flying out for a tour to England and Gibraltar.
Bermuda secured the title they have not won since 2012 by beating Guadeloupe 33-10 in the Rugby Americas North Championship final at North Field, National Sports Centre on Saturday.
Instead of resting on their laurels and enjoying a well-earned break, the national team have flown off island to take part in a tour of England and Gilbraltar.
In England, Jamie Barnwell’s team will take on Crowborough RFC, who are based in East Sussex and play in the London Two South East Division in a warm-up match.
Bermuda will then make the short trip over to Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory and headland, on Spain’s south coast.
“We reached our target in being crowned Caribbean champions, but we are already preparing for how we can keep on improving and push on further,” Barnwell said.
“Part of that progression is a tour to England and then Gibraltar.
“We’ll be playing Crowborough in our first game which will be a warm-up really for the main game against Gibraltar, so we’ve got some more big games ahead of us.”

Does anyone know about Borderland United Rugby Club?
A recent press release states they are fully professional and is made up of players from Ciudad Juarez and across the border in El Paso.
The club will be playing against US and Mexico teams. Any additional information?
