This Week at the Club - Coaches Week!

Greetings Loyalists,

This week is Coaches Week in Canada and we have a very special event on Thursday to celebrate one of our great coaches; more on that later.

Despite the result the B side…

This Week at the Club - Championship Edition

Morning Loyalists,

This past weekend was a very successful one for the club with some hardware claimed by both the Men's and the Women's sides. The Women started our Super-Saturday off against 6 time defending champs Moncton RFC and were looking to complete an undefeated NBRU season. They did so, and in resounding fashion. The game started off tight but turned into a romp with tries by Allyson Heustis, Stephanie Pratt (2), Renee Champagne (2) and Marissa Walcott (2).  Renee kicked…
