Rugby Opening Kickoff, Exhibition Matches, and Music Festival

Saturday, June 16th, 2018
1:00 – 6:00 pm / Recreation Center rugby fields

Saturday is a rugby day. Two competitive matches (women's and men's sides) are scheduled for those ready to pick up where they left off. These matches will be followed by a series of matches for all those simply interested in a good run. Carleton-affiliated bands will be performing on the festival stage. A Children's Program will be available with an instruction clinics, rugby songs and ballads and an art project.

There will be at least one competitive match for both the women and men. This match will be 15-a-side against a local senior side. If you want to be considered to play on this most competitive side please send your name and rugby qualifications to A selection committee will pick the game-day roster of 25.

If you want to play, but not on the most competitive side, or just to put on the kit and lace up the boots again (or break a little sweat and drink a refreshing beverage), show up with rugby kit and mouth guard. We will play 15-minute periods among ourselves all afternoon until every rugger who wants a good run gets one.
