Rugby Canada is proud to once again host the Canadian Rugby Championship Under 19 tournament, this year in St. John’s in Newfoundland. The tournament will take place over the course of 5 days from July 16th to the 20th at the Swilers Rugby Club.
This year’s contest features five regional teams from across Canada: the Ontario Blues, BC Bears, Prairie Wolf Pack, Atlantic Rock and Lower Canada Voyageurs.
Last year’s champions the BC Bears will be looking to defend their title after having beat the Wolf Pack in the final 15-13. Meanwhile the Atlantic Rock will be looking to make a big impact after being absent from the 2013 competition.
The Under 19 Canadian Rugby Championship is the premier youth rugby division in Canada, featuring some of Canada’s most talented players. The tournament serves as a feeder to the Senior Men’s Canadian Rugby Championship as well as to the National U20 Men’s Team.
Entry to the event is free, see full match schedule here.
There will be two matches played a day, meaning all teams will have a singular bye day.
The Swilers Rugby Club is located at: 100 Crosbie Rd, St John's, NL A1E 3Y3.
