BC Rugby – Senior Leagues Weekend Preview – September 22, 2018

The weather really seems to be hammering home the point that summer is over.  Fortunately, rugby is an all-weather sport and the men and women of the Senior Leagues are guaranteed 100% insoluble. With over 30 matches taking place across the Province this weekend, it’s another action-packed fixture list, with teams hoping to start building some momentum as the season gets into gear.

We’ve done a bit of a reshuffle on our website, meaning now it should be even easier to navigate to your favourite league table form the top menu on the BC Rugby website.  There will be some ongoing adjustments during September, so please bear with us while we fix any remaining bugs.
