rug vik

(ISN) – The Barnard Cup is one of the oldest sporting traditions in British Columbia and is contested each year by the top rugby clubs on Vancouver Island. After a round robin in September, the University of Victoria and Castaway Wanderers emerged on top.

Castaway Wanderers have struggled in the regular season Canadian Direct Insurance Premier League fixtures, going 0-7, but will be bolstered by the return of Ciaran Hearn and Jake Ilnicki who have been on assignment with Rugby Canada.

The University of Victoria Vikes are 5-1-1 in CDI Premier League play and lost only once in the Barnard Cup round robin, notching a +109 point differential over four games.

Kickoff is Saturday, November 29th at 2:30pm from Wallace Field, University of Victoria.
