Rugby union in Antigua and Barbuda
Like many small island groups, Antigua and Barbuda has a population problem. The main sport is cricket, and the national population is under 90,000.
The British first introduced the game to the islands, and for a number of years it was mainly played by expatriates. Now it has some uptake by the local population.
Games against visiting ships, and touring sides are common, as well as against neighbouring Caribbean islands.
