In addition Ms. Chantel John, one of the few World Rugby Level 1 certified referees in Saint Lucia, officiated in her very first regional tournament.  She received great reviews from the referees of international calibre that she worked alongside with at the tournament.

Despite the tough two day tournament, the Saint Lucia team kept their heads high and ended up concluding the tournament with what is becoming the Saint Lucia Women’s Team’s signature warm down dubbed ‘soca haka’. The video of the ‘soca haka’ went viral in social media receiving 3000 views in one day.

The tournament has provided a benchmark which indicated the level of Saint Lucian Rugby today and the level which we have to aspire.
