“We’ve got some really talented players-and the great thing about rugby in Canada right now is that kids are learning it at a younger age–kids are starting to play as young as 10 to 12 through mini programs at the club and also the under 14 program so there getting a good 3-4 years of rugby experience before they get to us….the biggest thing were trying to establish for them now is taking those basic rugby skills they’ve learned–catch-pass-tackle and bring them all together to make them work more as a cohesive unit….great group of kids–no issues–they come to practise–they work hard–there everything a coach could ask for.”

“We’ve got a lot of talented rugby players along with some pretty knowledgeable coaches so with the combination of those two could lead to a successful season.”

This group of young men are excited about the summer ahead and so is there coach who believes strongly in giving back to the sport he loves


“Whatever your passion is–it could be rugby it could be art…it could be anything–if your passionate about something I think its important that as you get older that you take what your passionate about and pass it on to others.”
