WOLF PACK KICK OFF 2017 CRC CAMPAIGN
- Submitted by

CALGARY (July 13, 2017) The Wolf Pack open their 2017 Canadian Rugby Championship campaign with a match on Friday, July 14, 2017 at 7:00 PM at UBC Thunderbird Stadium in Vancouver, BC. The Wolf Pack will be taking on the BC Bears. 

“We have a great deal of experience in the squad that we have named for this match,” said Jim Kazakoff, manager of the Wolf Pack. ”We expect to face a Bears squad that will have a strong contingent of internationally test-capped players. It will be a physical match and we will need to corral their talented backline,” added Kazakoff 

The 2017 Canadian Rugby Championship — featuring the Atlantic Rock, BC Bears, Ontario Blues and Prairie Wolf Pack — will consist of a condensed schedule, as was the case in 2015. The 2017 tournament will see each side play four games. The Wolf Packs remaining three games, including the final, will take place over a week in Calgary from August 13-19, 2017. The Ontario Blues are the defending MacTier Cup champions. 

The format could play to the Wolf Pack’s strength. “In 2015 we won our first MacTier Cup in an abbreviated schedule format in front of a home crowd. It would be great to be able to repeat that performance and outcome,” said Kazakoff. 

Friday’s game will be live streamed at: http://www.bcrugby.com/bc-rugby-live-streaming/
