BC Rugby weekend preview – April 26


The BC Rugby weekend preview

It’s time for playoff rugby! This Saturday, the final four teams left standing in the Canadian Direct Insurance Premier League compete in the semi-finals. 

UBC was the top team in the CDI regular season and defeated Burnaby Lake convincingly (46-29 and 36-8) in their two prior contests, but that will be irrelevant once their playoff game kicks off at Thunderbird Stadium. You can watch the live streaming coverage with Mike James onbcrugby.com/live at 2:45pm.

On Vancouver Island, UVic has been clinical in their ascent up the league tables, finishing in second place. They’ll bring a strong, seasoned lineup to face a Caps team that has been battered by injury in recent weeks. UVic won both meetings this season; the first time via a defensive stand in the final moments and the second time by a much wider margin. This will be a true test of experience versus youth. 

Starting rosters will be made available soon on bcrugby.com

  • UBC v Burnaby Lake, 2:45pm kickofff
  • UVic v Capilano, 2:45pm kickoff

The Rounsefell Cup Final will be on May 9th at Klahanie Park, 2:45pm kickoff. Tickets will be $10 at the gate. Cash only.
