The RRFC would like to congratulate Harjun Gill, Tomasi Vataiki, Nolan Howell and Anton Metalnikov on their medal winning results at the 2011 National Rugby Finals in Calgary! Congratulations!
The fall is approaching and clubs and players of excellence will be contemplating new heights in addressing fitness and good results. For those that have been languishing in the warm summer rays, supping Mai Tais with tiny parasols and sporting swollen midriffs, I have the midsummer work out for you.
Starting on Saturday May 28, there will be tryouts for this year’s Fraser Valley West u-16 boys team. This is the first step into representative rugby. The first tryout will be held at South Surrey Athletic Park. This applies to athletes born in the years 1995 and 1996. Be there for 11:00 am. The tryout will go from 11:30am to 2:00pm. The day will consist of skill assessments, fitness and speed testing. Please bring cleats, running shoes, mouth guard and lots of water. Athletes can wear whatever they are comfortable playing in (although preferably rugby shorts, socks, and a jersey or an athletic t-shirt).
Richmond's U16 men's team hosted the lower mainland championship this past Sunday against the Capilano All Blacks. The Richmond boys were on the brink of completing a perfect season, where they had beaten the Caps in regular season in a nail-biting 10-7 victory.
It was a spectacular weekend for the RRFC. Despite the fact that Velox defaulted their 2nd division game in place of a greatly bolstered 1st squad, the Surrey Beavers graciously pulled together a squad in preparation to play us for their tier II final next week. After some back and forth play in the opening phases Richmond was able to get the ball out wide to winger Matt Wong-Rose for the score in the corner, his first of two. Richmond played a conservative straight up game with straight running and good support. The referee despite being a little overzealous on the whistle kept Surrey’s forwards in line by penalizing them numerous times for coming offside. In a game stopped short by the referee, Richmond came out the victors with a 17-7 score.
In the Richmond area there are currently three programs running: McMath, McRoberts and Cambie. Under the guidance of former RRFC club captain Matt 'Skip' Wallace, the Cambie Crusaders are fielding a strong junior and senior side this spring season. Big up front, and with strong runners in the backs, Cambie will look to better their AA-Tier 2 Semi-final result of last year. Returning 13 of 15 starters will help.
