BC Rugby – Victoria, BC – July 7, 2016: The Canadian Direct Insurance BC Bears will look to bounce back from a narrow 27-21 defeat at the hands of the Prairie Wolf Pack last weekend when the two teams re-engage this Saturday for Round 2 of the Canadian Rugby Championship (CRC). The match will take place at Bullen Park [map] in Esquimalt (greater Victoria). Kickoff is at 3:00pm. Admission is $10 for adults, while students aged 18 and under can attend for free when presenting school ID. Children aged 12 and under are free.

The Bears led the Wolf Pack 11-3 at half-time in their last encounter, but conceded four tries in the second half and were unable to regain the lead after falling behind. Bears’ coach Gabriel Fulcher spoke about the adjustments the Team will need to make in the rematch.

“There were a lot of positives from the last game but we simply made too many unforced errors at key moments,” said Fulcher. “Had we been more clinical during the first half when we were so dominant we might have got more points on the board to cushion us from a Wolfpack resurgence in the second half. This week will be about doing the simple things better.”

The Bears will make two changes to their starting fifteen, as Taitusi Vikilani makes his CRC debut at #8, while Josh Clarke will move over to flanker.
