After famously hosting Queen City RFC last year at the first rugby game to be played at TD Place, news of the Border Bowl has spread far and wide.
The OBBRFC has awoken an ancient beast from its slumber, and our longtime Oktoberfest frenemies – the Burlington Centaurs – are descending upon Ottawa on May 6 to challenge us to our 2017 pre-season exhibition matches.
The Centaurs are sending both their men and women’s teams to face off against us, so it will take the combined efforts of both the Beavers and the Banshees to repel such an advance. But we stand up to the challenge.
This event will be an epic clash of mythical beasts of ancient rugby lore, and the game will be a highlight of our pre-season ramp-up, giving players the opportunity to get some rugby and socials in before the full 2017 season officially begins.
Note that any player wishing to play must be registered before this game takes place.
Date: Saturday, May 6, 2017
Time: Women kick off at 1:00pm, followed by the Men at 2:30
