Rugby Goes South With Northern Calalloo & Southern Bouillon Challenge


The St. Lucia Rugby Football Union (SLRFU) on Saturday 28 July, 2012 held its first ever “north vs. south” rugby game on the Piaye playing field. This was a new initiative for the union where members from the southern part of the island played their counterparts from the north.

The Southern Bouillon members attacked with full force playing some of their overseas British players, Joseph Page, Joel Martin, Michael Huntbach and Ken Charles who is based in St. Lucia. The Southerners wasted no time and kept their Northern Calaloo counterparts at bay.

Calaloo quickly retaliated by settling down and soon took control of the game. Lenford Eugene scored the first try with ease after a quick pass. Edlon Charlery and Jerry Charles joined Eugene where the three scored a total of nine trys.

In the final half the Southerners came out fast and furious and played a very spirited game. The Southerners brought to a complete halt the  “big trucks” of the north  Akim Hubert, Imran Williams and Arthur Joseph whilst the extremely vocal roger butcher and Chantel John help marshal the northerners  to victory. John the lone female player on the field was full of energy and technique.  The Northerers defeated the counterparts from the south nine trys to three.

The Union hopes that this  event will become a more regular one.

  1. Rugby World Cup packages to tour with other spectators and players to take part in the ultimate festival of rugby will appeal to followers of the game. Every four years the World Cup tournament comes around. This is like a climax that aficionados will patiently wait for. It builds up over years, months, weeks, days, and hours until the moment of the finals kick-off. Many people will save assiduously for years o be part of a tour.A party of rugby followers is likely to be a diverse group. The game knows no social, physical or psychological barriers. Quick small people have become legends of the game. Giants, both tall and wide, are central to the scrum and normal men are needed on the flanks. It is known as the gentlemen’s game for hooligans and both types are likely to be represented in any game.”
