As you are aware, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the BRFC rugby season for 2020 was cancelled. At this point we are still waiting for guidelines for the 2021 season to see if it will be viable to start the season. We are hoping for further instructions from the Government in the upcoming weeks and we will keep you apprised of any changes as we receive them.
SENIOR RUGBY (18 and over)
We are currently planning a skills based season for 2021, subject to permission from Rugby Quebec & Santé Publique. Senior practices - if permitted - would most likely occur Thursday evenings.
For more information please join the senior player FB page or contact the program directors.
