Jamaica finalise squad for Americas Championship

Jamaica has confirmed their 21-man playing squad for the 2018 Americas Championship, which will also act as qualifiers for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup.

The University of North Florida, Jacksonville, will host two double-header rounds on 13th and 17th November 2018, and in the opening fixtures Jamaica take on Canada, the winners facing either hosts USA or Chile.

For the Reggae Warriors it is a case of marrying up cultures, with four players from the domestic competition - all from 2018 double winners Duhaney Park Red Sharks - joining the bulk from the British game, in what is their strongest squad ever-selected.

JAMAICA 21-MAN SQUAD
Joel Farrell, Keenen Tomlinson, (Batley Bulldogs), Jonathan Magrin, Ross Peltier (Bradford Bulls) Daniel Thomas (Dewsbury Celtic) Jode Sheriffe (Dewsbury Rams) Aaron Jones-Bishop (Doncaster) Andrae McFarlane, Khamisi McKain, Marvin Thompson, Renaldo Wade (Duhaney Park), James Woodburn-Hall (Halifax ) Ashton Golding (Leeds Rhinos) Joseph Brown, Mo Agoro (Newcastle) Jacob Ogden (London Broncos) Jy-Mel Coleman, Lamont Bryan, Omari Caro (London Skolars) Ben Jones-Bishop (Wakefield ) Alex Brown (Unattached)

It is very good defence from Jamaica, Canada try disallowed as they used the player playing the ball as an obstruction.

Jamaica lead 12-4 with a few minutes to half time.

Link to the live stream above, for those interested.

And that's HALF TIME.

Jamaica 12
Canada 4

Winner of this game meets the winner of USA V Chile... and the winner of that game goes to RLWC 2021. The runner up goes into the World play off.

Didn't expect that result.

Jamaica has a number of heritage players in the English second division, unlike the Yanks who have several local players.

From stone fields to the World Cup: The Australian influence in Jamaica's stunning rise

Jamaica coach Romeo Monteith hopes the legacy of qualifying for the 2021 World Cup will be a dedicated rugby league field in Kingston and an invitation for the Reggae Warriors to play at the new International Nines in Australia next year.

"I think we are the fourth-biggest domestic nation on this side of the world [the northern hemisphere] in terms of participation numbers, behind England, France and Wales," Monteith said.
