Only 5 Days Until #ISLvsSAR
We are officially only 5 days away from one the most anticipated rugby matches of the summer! The newly formed USA Islanders will travel to Bermuda on August 10th to take on the Saracens at the Bermuda National Sports Centre!
Islanders Ready to Face the Saracens
With the game being 5 days away, the Islanders are prepared for their challenging open match with the world renowned Saracens in Bermuda at the Bermuda National Sport Centre. The USA Islanders are coached by Vahafolau Esikia, who played for the USA Eagles National Team during the 2007 Rugby World Cup. "Vaha" will also be assisted by coach Andrew "Tui" Osbourne, the current head coach for St. Bonadventure's University Rugby Club.
The team is composed of players who have a lot of rugby experience behind them; some range from playing in the ProRugby League during the Summer of 2016 as well as others who have played for some of the best club teams in the country. Some have even played for the Eagles, such as Olive Kilifi who took on the All Blacks in November of 2014 at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois. Others have participated with the USA 7s team, such as Matai Leuta. Others have played at some of the best colleges in United States, such as Colton Cariaga, who spent his college days playing for Life University and now serves as the head coach of the team.
#ISLvsSAR To Benefit Beyond Rugby Bermuda
When the Saracens travel to Bermuda to take on the USA Islanders, the match will be used as a charity platform to raise money for the Beyond Rugby Bermuda. Beyond Rugby is an organization started by WWE Superstar John Layfield that helps teach children the importance of staying in school and everyday life lessons through the sport of rugby.
