All through this year’s InterCol campaign, Hayden Ryan has been relying on divine support for his Shiva Boys Hindu College team. So while he watched his boys celebrating on the makeshift stage at the Ato Boldon Stadium with the trophy on Monday evening, it was not surprising to hear him describe himself as “blessed”. “Ah blessed, ah blessed, ah blessed,” he tells me, “The team blessed, the community blessed. I really thank God for the support base. I don’t know how they could take away this team home ground.” Behind us much of the Shiva travelling support, having made the trek from Penal, was still present. “Look they want to come and pray,” Ryan explained, pointing at the crowd, “is prayers they waiting on there”.
