It was business as usual for a depleted Hammerhead touring side last Saturday in the Bahamas. The boys traveled with 13 players but still managed to steal a victory from host club Cuckoos Rugby out of Nassau, Bahamas. The Bahamanians were big and fast, but handling would prove to be their downfall. Several scoring opportunities for the hosts were lost the way of knock-ons, while the Hammerhead defense held strong, stuck their tackles, and capitalized on mistakes.
