The British are coming! But they will need to be mindful of the impending Hurricane set to unleash on them when they arrive in Jamaica for a 2 game rugby league tour starting in early June.

The British Amateur Rugby League Association (BARLA) are sending an Under 23 team to take on Jamaica’s best local talent, with a fixture against the Hurricanes (only semi professional rugby league side in Jamaica) on Saturday June 7th, followed by a fixture the following weekend against the Jamaican Resident national team on Saturday June 14th. Both games are being played at Constant Spring Football Field, in what promises to be 2 action packed games of rugby league.HUrricanes RL Jamaica

The Hurricanes, who have aspirations to one day play in the USA Rugby League competition, will go into the game having produced a stella performance in April to defeat the USARL Pioneers. That victory, which saw in excess of 1,000 spectators, has further increased the public awareness of rugby league and also lifted the morale of the playing group.Phil C Man Run 2014

“This is a really exciting time for rugby league in Jamaica. We always knew that if we could attract teams from USA, UK and Canada, that we would have a wonderful product to sell to the Jamaican sporting and general public. What the game against the Pioneers did, was put the Hurricanes brand clearly in the public eye and now we are looking to add to that with a strong performance on the field against BARLA and an event that will showcase the organisational ability of the Hurricanes”.

Kick off for the game vs BARLA U23’s is at 4pm at Constant Spring Football Field on Saturday June 7th. For tickets, please contact Hurricanes General Manager Roy Calvert at or 404 6024.
