Pacific Northwest, home of North America’s best rugby

Canada vs. Italy about to kick off at the Elland Road Stadium in Leeds, England, the first rugby union international game to be played here.

Of the 31-man Canadian squad, 11 of them come from British Columbia. Five of the players on the U.S. side come from either Seattle or Bellingham, WA. Pretty much makes the argument that the best North American rugby is to be found in the Pacific Northwest.

The Castaway Wanderers from Vancouver Island have four players on the Canada team. The University of British Columbia Old Boys and the James Bay team from Victoria, B.C., each have two. University of Victoria, the Capilanos of North Vancouver and the British Columbia Bears each have one.
