The Canadian Rugby Championship is getting more popular after Olympics. Rugby in Canada is funded by World Rugby & also competing for the MacTier Cup.
The Capilano RFC – The most successful rugby club
The Capilano RFC clubs started in 1969, the 50th anniversary coming up in two years. It was originally two clubs a north fan and a west fan club combining to create the Capilano kind of like the field of dream stuff. You know if you build it they will come well they did come and you know we attracted people like Jamie Cudmore who played for Squamish axman and then came here before he went over there were very successful a career overseas. And there’s been many more before that Tony Scott was there Canada player and then many many more since certainly we have to on the Canada sevens teams. We have women players on there on the women’s team. Jones’s top-notch captain a Canada right now.
And Adams Aruba is one of the top knots players in the world at this point. He’s always been traditionally strong but the benefits of inserting BC is that you can play if you wanted 12 months a year. Here I mean granted the world sometimes it might rain a little bit too much but the other provinces across the country.
You know they’re dealing with snow frozen ground you know that allows some of the Canadian players from other other provinces to come to play here, gives them more rugby time. I think it’s just the clubs here are so strong and a lot of them has such great traditions and that just builds up strong clubs.
It’s been obviously very successful and it’s been great the rugby community obviously knows well about sevens but what I’ve seen is the non-rugby people have really taken to it. It’s a fun event. The Olympics was a big help as well.

They don’t train them to the best in Canada and we target and they never stop working trying to make them be as good as those players, yeah the city of Langford has partnered with rugby Canada to provide facilities here for Canada’s rugby team at city center park in Langford.
