We should understand the quality of their team with Dane Parks and Ronald Myers in their line-up but I also believe that the local teams, who also boosted their teams with overseas-based players, will try to keep that prize money in Guyana,” said Rawle Toney, vice-president of the Hornets Rugby Club and organiser for the event.According to Toney, today will be more than just rugby; it will be keeping with the ‘Carnival fever’ that has hit Guyana.Meanwhile, Ramp Logistics, one of Guyana’s leading providers of freight forwarding and supply chain management services, became the latest corporate entity to support the tournament, joining title sponsors Ansa McAl/STAG Beer, DDL/Pepsi and Guyana Lottery Company’s Let’s Bet Sports.last_img read more
