Thank you to everyone who supported the team this year. It felt good to win. Something that we have always encouraged is playing rugby in the summer. It’s a great environment to learn more rugby and have fun with friends and become a club member. There are lots of clubs in Edmonton. If you are interested in playing club ball this summer ask a friend or check out the club’s websites. For returning players, if you play club ball you get even more experience that you can then bring back to the high school team. After all we do have a city championship to defend. Start talking to your friends now about playing rugby this summer and next year. Have a great summer, we’ll see you at your games this summer.
City finals was definitely a challenging game. McNally came at us with a very big, physical forward pack. We were able to hold them back and counter, the final score was 31-17 to win the program its fifth city championship. With that win we will be representing Edmonton at the Provincial competition in Lethbridge on June 3 and 4. If you know one of the players, wish them luck.
For all of the Provincial tournament info go to the ASAA’s website. You can also follow along on Twitter, @sconarugby for updates
It’s been a few years since our last trip to city finals, but back. We will be playing McNally on Thursday, May 26 at the Ellerslie Rugby Park. Kickoff is at 6:15 pm. If you can’t make it we’ll be live streaming the game, if the weather cooperates. Follow the team on Twitter @sconarugby for a link to the game.
This weekend is our last tournament. We will be playing in the Ross Sheppard Rugby Tournament. Our first game is at 3 pm tomorrow (Friday) against a tough McNally team. Unfortunately a team had to drop out, so we will be playing the M.E. Lazerte junior team. This is a great chance for some of our newer players to get some valuable field time. Then to finish the tournament we get to play Harry Ainlay on Saturday at 1 pm.
Our regular season comes to a close tonight as we play O’Leary to determine playoff positions. Win or lose though, we will be playing O’Leary in semi-final action. Once the date has been set we’ll post it. Take some time this weekend to come and watch some rugby.
Each year Rugby Alberta searches for the best players in the province to represent Alberta at different age levels. This year, the Edmonton Gold will be holding open tryouts to start this process. Players will be assessed and evaluated for the Edmonton team. From there, the Gold will play the Calgary Mavericks and players for Alberta will be selected from those two teams. This is a great opportunity to get more playing time and higher level playing and coaching.
