  • Top Junior Rugby Players Coming to St. John’s for Canadian Championships

    The Canadian Rugby Under-19 Male Championships are coming to St. John’s this summer.

    The Newfoundland and Labrador Rugby Union has been selected to host CRC U-19 Championships from August 5 to 11 at the Swilers Rugby Complex.

    The Canadian Rugby Championships are the highest level of rugby in the country, with over 100 of the top junior rugby players making their way to the island.

    The CRC acts as a pathway and identification for players for the national rugby programs and was last held in St. John’s six years ago.

    Five regional teams will compete: the Atlantic Rock, a St. John’s-based team and the home of the Canadian Sports Center Atlantic Rugby Program, as well as British Columbia, Ontario, the Prairies and Quebec.

    Dr. Patrick Parfrey, World Rugby Council Representative for Canada and Team Manager for the Atlantic Rock says it’s the most important championship in the country and with the bulk of the team from Newfoundland they expect to get plenty of support.
