Battle set for Brockton Oval

Rowers look for redemption in rematch--

The VRC seconds take on Kamloops Oct. 13 at Rayleigh Rugby Park.
While the seconds won their match 75-25 that day, the firsts fell to
Kamloops 32-25.

After a tough road loss to Kamloops in October, the first division finally has a shot at redemption. This weekend the Rowing Club faces Kamloops RFC at Brockton Oval. The first division lost in Kamloops earlier this year 32-25.

Both squads posted road wins last weekend against the Surrey Beavers and the VRC could take the sting out of the winter break by closing out this half of the season with two more victories.

Member-at-large Matty James is encouraging all fans and alumni to make it down to the pitch in Stanley Park for the final match of the half. (He also noted that anyone who wants tickets to the Dec. 15 Christmas party, could grab them from him at the same time.)


The fourth-place Rowers (5-2) only fell short of Kamloops (6-2) by seven points in their previous encounter. Currently, the KRC holds down third place in the log, but the Rowers could leapfrog them win a bonus-point win.

This weekend the Rowers desperately need to start better than they did last week, as they had to battle back from an early 19-point deficit.


The Super Twos (6-1) downed Kamloops (2-6) by a 75-25 margin in the Thompson River Valley Oct. 13. The squad is also looking to start better than they did last week when they too gave up an early lead. The squad battled from behind and eventually won, led by Jonathan Mergui’s two-try performance.

Kick off times at Brockton Oval:

1:00 Second XV vs Kamloops
2:30 First XV vs Kamloops
