EMCS Boys Rugby sees successful season

The EMCS Senior boys rugby team.

The EMCS boy’s rugby team went 3 – 2 in a very difficult league, and are currently sitting third in the league.  We always play against well-established teams from Victoria, where many of the players have years of experience.  We rely on the athleticism and grit of our local boys, and can usually pull off a victory.  Even when losing, our team makes it interesting, nobody likes to play us. Our first playoff game is on May 13 at SMUS in Victoria.  We are hoping to build on the successes of both the boys and girls team, as both are in the playoffs.  The girls had a great season, going nine victories and one loss, moving between first and second in the league, and also in the playoffs.  Both teams are well positioned for next year, as the bulk of our teams are returning.
