As we gear up for another summer of rugby, Rugby Alberta, Saskatchewan Rugby and Rugby Manitoba are pleased to announce the launch of the Prairie Super League.
We reviewed our domestic game and with the excellent support of the Provincial and Sub-Unions leaders now believe we have a clear competition pathway to follow. This is not a radical plan, it is simply overdue and we look forward to the impact it will have on rugby in the Prairies. Most importantly, this provides greater opportunities for aspiring players and coaches locally, removing some of the geographical barriers we face and the costs associated with it.
All of the Provincial and Sub Union teams are particularly excited about restoring their local identity; it resets the ambitions of everybody and offers a fresh start.
The competition for 2018 will comprise of 4 teams, Calgary Mavericks, Edmonton Gold, Saskatchewan and the Manitoba Buffalo.
Mark Discombe Sask Rugby and Prairie Wolf Pack player shares his thought ‘Coaching some of the u16/u18s leading up to the Man/Sask Regional’s, they’re excited to see some high level rugby and get a taste of what’s to come a few years down the line. As well the Sask Rugby community in general is pretty excited. We’ve been lacking next level rugby for a long time now, so to get to host the second stage of the Prairie Super League in Regina is awesome for us!’
“Calgary Rugby Union and its members are excited for the Prairie Super League and the development of our local players. We played an indoor Exhibition game against the Edmonton Gold at the University of Alberta in April and the players had a great experience” Nick McCauley VP Calgary Rugby Union and Prairie Wolf Pack Player
Director of Rugby
