|The first ever home game for Jamaica|
The American RL international tournament that was held for the fourth time in 2017 has concluded. In 2009 there were two nations but the other three were a tri-series. Unsurprisingly the USA won it for the fourth time, but what did change was Jamaica returning to second spot. Playing at home for the first time helped the Reggae Warriors no doubt but is also testament to the hard work being done there.
To review the scores, the USA won the first match played in Jacksonville 48-6. Then in Kingston Jamaica won 28-14 in their encounter with Canada. Finally the USA traveled up to Toronto and came away with the victory 36-18.
|*Formerly the Atlantic Cup|
The Colonial Cup (see historical results here) is played between Canada and the USA and for this year, the America's Championship game was also for this cup as well.
