March 13, 2013, Victoria, BC (ISN) – Anticipating a wet week and a messy field, the Valhallians vs Academy match up has been moved to Langford’s Goudy Field on Friday night at 6:30pm.

The field is adjacent to the City Centre Park and the Rugby Canada offices, on Langford Parkway. Hopefully we can get lots of club supporters out for what should be an entertaining match.

Academy Report

By Matt Mortenson

The score between the academy and Saxons was 17 to 12 for the Saxons. A game the academy would like to have back as they pressured UVic so much in the last 15 minutes they could not get out of their 22.

In part to the Academy’s excellent fitness but also to their intensity. academy dominated the scrum but failed to execute off of it due to ball handling errors. Also several lost try’s as a result of not passing the ball. Very simple passes would have sealed the deal.

Credit to UVic boys who played superb defence and scored when they had to. Their tackling was also top notch. Academy dominated ball possession but lost the game directly related to a lack of resilience and selfish plays
