And here's an update on the Black Sheep Courtesy Randy Thoen.
Welcome to the beginning of the 2009-10 Rugby season. The Black Sheep have been doing some growing over the last couple of seasons and begin this season fielding 4 different teams. Beginning on Saturday at 11:30 am, the Ladies side opens the Black Sheep season at home vs. UVic. The ladies have worked hard at recruiting players in the off season and so several more players will be making their debut, let’s come out and cheer them on.
The Div. 1 Men open their season on the road this Saturday with an early start on the road (7:15 am) to allow a stop for some new boots for those who require them. They will play the UVic Norsemen in Victoria, a chance for the boys to get the first road trip out of the way, arrive and knock off the bus-dust and get their heads stuck in early.
On Sundays, the Sheep are proud to be fielding a U-15 side for boys as well as a Div 3 side for the men. The U15 Boys were to head for Cowichan for an 11:30 am start but have had their first game of the season re-scheduled. The Div. 3 Men, playing in the North Vancouver Island Rugby Union will be at home for their season opener vs. Nanaimo with the kick-off happening at 1 pm. All home games happen at the Black Sheep Rugby facilities at the top of Argyle St. , everyone is welcome to come and cheer the Sheep on.
Good Luck to all of the Sheep sides in their opening weekend!
