Just after receiving permission from the Mayor and City Councillors of Georgetown to utilise the Parade Ground for their much needed practice sessions, President of the Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU) Peter Green has made a passionate call for better facilities to be given to sporting disciplines.
During a media briefing, the top Rugby official described the poor conditions under which the team had to operate prior to receiving permission to use the Parade Ground.
Green disclosed that attempts to utilise other grounds such as the Leonora Complex were proved futile owing to it being used by another sporting fraternity. Nevertheless, he expressed gratitude for the Parade Ground, but not without outlining the difficulties they may encounter.
The visibly frustrated official used the opportunity to make a bold call for a facility that is strictly for rugby.
The National Rugby team is currently in preparation for the Caribbean and Central American Games in Barranquilla, Columbia.
