July 15, 2013  (Toronto) – The Reggae Warriors are out for revenge --again. The Jamaica based team has lost the Scotibank Toronto Caribbean Rugby Cup twice to the Canadian National Team (The Wolverines). The two teams will have a rematch, the evening of July 20thas part of the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival festival.
The Reggae Warriors and the Wolverines will begin their match at 7p.m. July 21st at the Lamport Stadium in downtown Toronto. The Cup Match will include not just rugby but also live entertainment before, during and after the game.
The Wolverines have been together for three years, and have gone from an unranked world position to 18th in that time, (Jamaica is 23rd). This is a great achievement, but there is still a lot to do and we need support to go to the next level of this growing sport,” said Cory Tukeli, cup organizer.  The Jamaica game is on the Saturday evening of the Caribbean Carnival weekend and promises to be an exciting, hard running, hard hitting game.
“There will be music as well, food and a beer tent available,” he continued. “Rugby League is known for it's family atmosphere, so it is definitely kid friendly, bring them along! Tickets are just $10.00.
