BC Rugby – Before we start into our news about representative rugby, we would first like to congratulate all our clubs and officials on another fantastic season. Club Rugby season on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland concluded last Saturday, with nine new divisional championships earned on the day.

Club Rugby, however, is just starting up for the teams in BC’s expansive interior. This weekend, the Penticton Harlequins host Manthers, while Prince Rupert and Elk Valley are off to Missoula, Montana, for a tournament.

On the Pacific coast, the focus now shifts to regional and provincial representative rugby, with a busy summer schedule ahead.

In Memoriam

BC Rugby was saddened to learn about the passing of Cindy Briggs, who was a well known member of the Vancouver Island Rugby community. She, along with her late father Tillman and her son Ollie, formed a multi-generational link of family members that helped to make the name Briggs synonymous with the James Bay Athletic Association. BC Rugby wishes to express our condolences to her family. To read her obituary, click here.
