Broomes lead Panthers to another Rugby 12s victory

Godfrey Broomes (white) outrunning the pack for a try

Witnessed by a smattering of boisterous fans, the Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU) pressed on with the 12s version of the game on Sunday last, and it resulted in Godfrey Broomes commandeering the Panthers Club to an exhilarating victory over the Guyana Defence Force (GDF).
As the two titans on the local rugby scene met, the Panthers proved too hot to handle for the lawmen.
Panthers’ Godrey Broomes had the first try and conversion for his team, and later went on to dominate; ending the game with two tries and five conversions.
The GDF staged a comeback with two tries immediately after. While Leon Cole, Jamal Darrel, Avery Corbin and Akeno James completed one try each, coupled with two conversions from Kevin Wills, it was not enough to pressure the Panthers.
The Panthers, on the other hand, had two tries from D’Arcy Durant and conversions from Delroy Fordyce, Kareem Fisher and Makayah Smith.
Eventually, Panthers went on to win the encounter 45-26.
The fairly new 12s version of the game was introduced by the GRFU back in February. The Rugby 12s team usually consists of 6 forwards and 6 backs.
