It was a match made in heaven. Combine the most exciting new Olympic sport (Rugby Sevens) with the biggest music, sports, and social event for young adults in the interior of BC (Center of Gravity), and you're sure to have something special.
100+ elite rugby athletes on nine teams go head-to-head at City Park this weekend. The tournament features several very competitive sides, including:
- Fiji Blonde - a Lower Mainland team that just won the Stampede Sevens Tournament in Calgary;
- Canadian Coos - a team of talented locals compiled by professional rugby player Cam Pierce (see photo);
- Westshore Valhallians - provincial 3rd Division Champions for the past two years; and
- Vernon Jackals - winners of the Okanagan Rugby Union competition this summer.
