Rugby Canada has announced that the Novel COVID-19 virus spread has suspended rugby sanctioned events and play until April 10th, 2020. At that time, RC will reassess the situation, but we are hopeful that we will know more in the next 2 weeks about what the rugby season will look like. We are currently looking at all angles and are trying to be proactive with this situation. Please be patient, we will try to keep our community informed on the Facebook groups/page and Instagram
From now until April 11th, we have invited the Central Alberta Buccaneers Football team to join us in a friendly blood drive donation challenge! The club with picture proof of the most donations, wins!
