The Men fell short in their quest for the Caledonia and Maritime bragging rights falling 46-22 to the Halifax Tars. After a rough start we came back to win the second half but it was too little too late. Tough end to a good year. Huge thanks to the 50+ Loyal fans who made the trip down. Great to see!

Last week saw and wonderful gathering to honour Malcolm MacAfee and all he has done in coaching players of all levels as well as developing coaches at all levels. CoachNB was onsite along with a big crowd to award Malcolm with a Lifetime Excellence Award. A Rugby Canada representative was also on hand to present him with a signed jersey. Thanks for everything Mac!
On the field there was only one game last week which saw the B side host the Trojans in the B side semi-final. Things started off tight but our strength and depth wore a tough young Trojan side down and we wound up with a convincing 64-7 victory. That puts the B side through to the Finals and that brings us to what is on tap this week.
