Saturday October 1
This Saturday will see four Capilano RFC Senior teams in action. The Capilano U23 Men will travel to Kelowna for an exhibition game against the UBC Okanagan Men. This will be a good test for both sides and the Capilano U23 Men look to keep their winning ways going.

Klahanie Park will host a triple header between the Capilano Rugby Club and the Seattle Saracens. It is always great to host the same club for three matches and this will make for a great day. The Capilano Premier Women will be playing at home for the first time this season. Kickoff is set for 11:30am on the Bob Spray Field and the Premier Women will be playing this weekend in the special pink breast cancer jerseys. The 1st Division Men look to get back on track after a 26-0 loss last weekend. This match is set to kick off at 1:00pm on the Bob Spray Field. The final match of the day will see the Premier Men host the Seattle Premier Men. This will be a tough test for the Capilano Men but they will be up for the challenge.

Come down to the Capilano Rugby Club this Saturday to support your club in three big matches. These will be intense and closely fought matches, you won’t want to miss. Go Caps!!

Match Reports

Last weekend was Breast Cancer Awareness Day at the Capilano Rugby Club. It was a very successful day off the field as the club raised its 5 year total to $20,000. A big THANK YOU to all those who participated and to Craig McLaren for organizing. John Langley has provided match reports from the four home games that took place on Saturday. They can be found by clicking here. The North Shore News also provided some game photos from last weekend. These photos can be found by clicking here.


Cudmore story

A piece on the Cudmore family has recently been written by the Daily Mail. The whole story can be found by clicking here. It discusses an important issue with hits to the head in rugby. Thanks to Jamie and Jen for making this such a priority. Here is a note to go along with the story from the Cudmore family.

“The Daily Mail piece neglected to mention that any legal action taken would not be for our financial gain. Any assumed financial motives are simply to support and help establish the Rugby Safety Network and nothing more. Our intention is for clubs to stand by their players and we’d like it admitted that player health and welfare was in jeopardy. Aside from responsibility the only thing we would seek is investment in the not-for-profit organization that will ultimately aid concussion health and awareness. Thank you to our supporters. We can’t do this without you.”
