History

Bermuda first played in qualifying tournaments for a Rugby World Cup in the Americas tournaments for the 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa. Bermuda were eliminated from North-Round 1, losing 3 points to 60 to the United States. Bermuda attempted to qualify for the 1999 Rugby World Cup in Wales as well, participating in Group 2 of Round 1 Americas qualifying, where they finished at the top of their pool after defeating both the Bahamas and Barbados, and advancing to Round 2. They defeated Trinidad and Tobago in their first match, but then lost to Chile, and finished second, ending their qualifying run.

Bermuda competes in the Caribbean Championship, a tournament which includes Antigua, Trinidad and Tobago, the Cayman Islands, Jamaica, the Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, and Guyana.[1]

They competed in the North group of the Round 1 of the Americas tournaments in qualifying for the 2003 Rugby World Cup in Australia. They were however knocked out by Trinidad and Tobago and did not advance to Round 2. They drew 10-all against Jamaica in the qualifying tournaments for the 2007 Rugby World Cup in France but did not advance.
