At the AAA level, Shawnigan Lake retained the R.P. Woodward Memorial Shield for the fifth straight year, fending off a strong challenge from Vancouver’s St. George’s. Yale placed third for a first time ever medal placing. In AA competition, Collingwood defeated Rockridge in a hard-fought contest for Championship honours, while top-ranked Brentwood College edged Victoria’s St. Michaels University for Bronze Medal placing.

Whistle Talk – News from the BCRRS
From time to time the BC Rugby Referees’ Society will publish a newsletter featuring discussion on the Laws of the Game, and the impact they have on the way the game is played in British Columbia. As the IRB clarifies the Laws with its policies and rulings, it is hoped that this newsletter will do the same for officials, coaches, players and fans. For a copy of the current laws, go to http://www.irblaws.com/EN/downloads
