Congrats to the “Big Barbs” the 2017 ‘Hangar Fall League’ Champions! #congrats #yeomenrugby #champs
The Burlington Fall Touch Rughy Finals were held this past Thursday at Sherwood Forest Park.
The MAC Daddy’s upset the dominate Peach Eggplant Splash Splash team to win as Fall league Champs.
Blue Steel defeated the NOBS in the Consilation Final.
Thanks to Bob Mavro and Steve Scott as referrees and everyone that participated in the Fall League.
The Burlington Winter League starts up on Thursday January 4th.
This coming Sunday will be the first of two championship days for the CTR fall season. First up, The Hangar league in Toronto will host 10 teams competing for the right to be named league champions. There are a few favourites heading into Sunday including ‘The Bay St. Gormandizers’, ‘Big Barbs’, however competition is relatively tight so any team will be dangerous on the day.
Burlington will host its championship day on the 21st of December and will mark the first time a team will have an opportunity claim the title. Unlike The Hangar league, there has been a clear favourite from day one which is the team from Brantford who are looking to continue to collect hardware this year after their back to back McCormick Cup Championship. A few players from the ‘Quinns’ have maintained their fine form from the summer season.
However which way the dust settles, we are looking forward to hosting what will be another fun day of rugby!
See below for more action shots:
For those looking to join us this winter there is still space for teams and individuals at the Hangar in Toronto.
We play the sport of rugby because it is the game we love, but there is so much more that brings us back week after week! See the link below for some great action shots taken by Leighton Chong displaying the friendship, sweat, and sometimes physical agony that we choose to love.
FYI- There are 1-2 team/individual spots open at the Hangar and in Burlington for those still looking to join us for the 2018 winter season! The U.C.C. league is now full.
It was a successful start to the CTR season at the Hangar in Toronto this passed weekend. For those fresh off summer rugby campaigns it was a matter of making a few simple adjustments to their playing style… for those who are new to the game, or haven’t picked up a ball in a while there was a light burning sensation in the lungs for many. Not to worry, the hands and fitness will return soon (hopefully!).
Thank you to the captains who have embraced the new website and have experimented with their own personal team pages. For those who haven’t had a chance to play around with new the features- we recommend it! A reminder that scores and announcements/emails/photos etc. can all be completed directly from the team page.
Lots more rugby to come!
