Belize Versus Guatemala in Rugby International Friendly

The Belize national rugby team is currently preparing to face off against the national team from Guatemala on November twenty-fifth at the Marion Jones Sporting Complex in Belize City. After several local competitions, the international match takes place and Rugby Belize is asking the public to come out and witness the revitalization of the sport. As we found out, the team is confident that they’ll secure a win against the Guatemalan team.

“They had a practice game with BATSUB last weekend; did really well. And so now we are facing Guatemala on the twenty-fifth of November at the Marion Jones [Sporting Complex].  Huge step for rugby in this country, but also a huge step for sport in this country too.”

“I think that Belize is definitely going to win. The main reason is I have confidence in my team; my teammates got confidence in each other. We didn’t get a chance to practice as much as I’d want them to, but the twenty-fifth is a long way from here. I am sure we can get more practices in and build more practices in and build more confidence within each other and we will definitely bring home the goal.”

“Of course we are ready. Just a little more practice and we got this game in the bag. I haven’t seen the Guatemalan team, per say, but what I’ve heard they are really trained; they have that chemistry with them so they are going to give us a run, but we are going to give them back the same run.”
