Triple Header Saturday

This will be the only time this season our Premier Ladies, 1st Division and 3rd Division Men will play together at home – a day not to be missed Piggie Nation!  

Games this Weekend

Saturday, January 30, 2016

  • 11:30 am:  Premier Women host Bayside RFC
  • 1:00 pm:  3rd Division Men host Nanaimo RFC
  • 2:30 pm:  1st Division Men host Nanaimo RFC

Premier Women

Triple headers Saturday opens with the ladies hosting Bayside.  The Piggies and Sharks have identical records but the Piggies lead in the standings thanks to a handful of bonus points.  The Piggies are looking to get back in the win column after a couple of disappointing losses to CW.  

The  last match up between Bayside and the Piggies was in 2007 in the BC Finals  Bayside.  Bayside won that game and moved into Premier and we have met them since.  Bayside has have never played at Piggie Park (we think) and this weekend couldn’t be a better time for their first visit!   

3rd Division Men

The Mighty 3rds host Nanaimo in the second match of the day.  Having the 3rds back in action is great for the Club and Island Rugby.  It’s a great platform for our young players to make the leap from junior to senior rugby, given them a chance to learn with experienced players.  

Nanaimo integrated players from VIU last season, hopefully they were able to keep that relationship going.  The Piggies will have a nice mix of youth and experience out tomorrow and will be looking for their second win of the new season! 

1st Division Men

The day will wrap up with the 1sts hosting Nanaimo.  The last time the Piggies and Nanaimo played was the the Times Cup semi-final back in November.  An epic, hard hitting battle saw the Piggies come out on top.  

Nanaimo beat the Velox 1A team (who competed for one of the Island Premier spots in the fall but were unsuccessful) last weekend, where the Piggies fell to Port.  

The lads are looking to bouncing back into the win column and are looking forward to the full support of the Piggie Nation behind them!
