Rugby Recruitment

Tierney Watkinson | Contributor

The UNBC Rugby teams are now recruiting!

Both the men’s and women’s teams are excited to accept new members. Experience is not necessary and all fitness levels are welcome. Whether you have been playing for years or have never before tackled someone; all you need is the desire to play the game. Rugby is the perfect sport for someone who is not afraid to hit the dirt once in a while; however, this sport is not all about hitting. Join a rugby team, and its members will become your family.

The first, highly anticipated tournament is the “Gobbler” in Abbotsford, traditionally scheduled for Thanksgiving weekend. Joining the club does not mean you are obligated to attend every tournament, although the experience is not one to miss! Practices as the UNBC teams are still to be determined.

If you are interested in joining or would like to check out a practice, please contact Johanne Jensen, Club President of the women’s team, at! Or request to join the “UNBC Women’s Rugby” or “UNBC Rugby” Facebook pages.
