The Saint Vincent and the Grenadines national rugby union team represents the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in international rugby union. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are considered a tier three nation by the International Rugby Board (IRB), and have yet to make their debut at the Rugby World Cup.

History[edit]

A St. Vincent Amazon (Amazona Guildingii)

They decided to call the team Amazona Guildingii after the rare and graceful Vincentian Parrot, and selected the national colours of green, yellow and blue for their jerseys and shorts. Soon afterwards those that could afford it, purchased their own uniforms.

Games and result[edit]

The first game ever played was against the British Royal Navy Destroyer HMS Newcastle, on the 8th February 1998. The game was won by the home side.

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines attempted to qualify for the 2007 Rugby World Cup in France, playing the first match of the Americas qualifying tournament. They played a Preliminary qualifier against Saint Lucia in May 2005. The winner would progress to the South Pool of Round 1a, however, Saint Lucia won the match 36-25.

On March 29, 2008, Saint Vincent was defeated by Mexico 47-7 in a pre-qualifier for the right to enter the NAWIRA region qualifying process for Rugby World Cup 2011.
