A Tribute by Chris Turpin, Gleneagle Secondary School
The rugby community in BC is saddened by the news that a true legend has passed away. Tony Whitham passed away on June 23rd . Tony was born in 1937 in Halifax, England. His early years were shaped by growing up in working class England during and after the war. His father was killed in action in France shortly prior to the Evacuation at Dunkirk in May 1940. Tony was raised by his widowed mother who helped instill a work ethic and values that Tony was famous for. Upon graduating from Manchester University Tony taught for three years at Highlands Technical Grammar School. In 1963, Tony persuaded his wife that winter could not be much colder in Canada. So Tony and his wife, Kathleen, and young daughter, Jo-Ann, moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Whithams stayed for three years in Winnipeg before moving to BC. Tony taught one year at Princess Margaret Secondary in Surrey. Then Tony made the switch to the growing school district of Coquitlam and taught at Centennial Secondary School from 1967-1973. In 1967 the Whithams were blessed with a second child, a son, named Bob.
Purdey’s late try carries the day, Stags find a way to hold off Saints in classic 4A boys rugby final

ABBOTSFORD — It was a match many had predicted would be a blow-out win in favour of the defending champion Shawnigan Lake Stags.
Instead, Vancouver’s St. George’s Saints never believed they were underdogs, and in the dying moments, almost had the opportunity to pull an upset of major proportions in the B.C. quad-A boys high school rugby championship final Saturday at Abbotsford’s Rotary Stadium.
Shawnigan Lake went on to win 12-8, but not before Owen Pitblado of St. George’s chipped the ball through the Stags try-zone with 1:13 remaining, and was just shy of pouncing on it for what would could well have been the game’s winning play.
