Please find below a schedule for the 2015 “High School Rugby 7’s Tournament” to be held at UVIC Centennial Stadium this Sunday April 12th . This event is a pre-qualifier for the Provincials and is proudly sponsored by the Saanich Police Association and the Saanich Police Athletic Association. Games will be played continuously throughout the day between 9-5pm.
Rugby has risen in popularity over the years and has now achieved Olympic Status. This tournament will help identify future players who will represent BC and ultimately Canada at the 2016 Summer Olympics. This year’s list include 10 High Schools from across Vancouver Island who will compete in four 20 minute round robin games each, vying for a position in the final playoff games. Oak Bay High School are the defending champions but will be challenged this year by some very tough competition.
The game is fast, exciting, and delivers continuous action in this full body contact sport. Awards to be presented on completion by Inspector Fryer, School Liaison Officers, and of course our very own Cst. Roy Radu who will present the prestigious “Radu Cup.” Special guest appearance by ACE in the afternoon. Retired S/Sgt. Doug Oakley will have his “62” Chevrolet police vehicle available for viewing throughout the day.
Please join us for this free event and enjoy a great day of Rugby.
Cst. Paul Egli, Saanich Police School Liaison Officer
