2018 Truro Rugby Indoor 7's World Championship
The much anticipated, hallowed event returned to the MacMillan Show Centre in Bible Hill Nova Scotia this March 9-11th. The tournament, more affectionately called Rugby Christmas, saw teams from across the country descend on Truro to compete in this annual championship. As one of the longest running tournaments in the country there was plenty of rugby for everyone with 88 matches spread over 3 days over competition.
This year we saw legends come together in one of the most spirited and touching memorials to one of our own fallen legends, Davin Moxsam. Mother nature tried her hardest to dampen the spirits of competitors this year only to find her efforts in vain as not even turning out the lights put a stop to the party. Congratulations to Enfield who won both the Women's and Men's A Divisions. The men winning a hotly contested match that went into sudden death overtime against familiar rivals HRFC.
Are you one of the few people who can say that you don't know the event?? This is the year to change all of that! People from far and wide make the annual pilgrimage to the event, often many years after they have stopped competing in the event. The is something for everyone, whether you are a player looking to test your mettle, a former player looking back on fond memories, or even just a curious spectator looking to experience something new. There is no other event like it in Canada.
2017 Rugby Canada CRC
This year Truro Rugby Club and Rugby Nova Scotia were honoured to host some of the finest rugby players in the nation as they competed for the 2017 CRC Titles. Many fans came out to support the Keltics in their pursuit for the top spot in the country. With the clean up finished and dust just starting to settle now at the Truro Rugby Club in North River we start to look ahead for more premier events at the club.
Club President Owen Hutchison:
"Now that the dust is long in rear view mirror I just want to thank everyone for making nationals a huge success. We definitely put the club on the map for Rugby Canada events in future."
Provincial Coach Jack Hanratty:
"...With all these results nothing was as special as the performance of Truro Saints RFC.
From start to finish the members of the Saints were incredible. From a stellar canteen - ball boys and girls to running around with mini rugby starts of the future and of course Dick on the field every evening making sure it was as good as new for the following day.
Truro the country came and you delivered.
Thanks to every player, coach, manager, referee, volunteer, photographer from the last number of weeks who helped showcase our province."
