Congratulations to the Div 3 Men on their successful season.  After winning the ERU championship at the end of September, they put the boots on one last time in Calgary to challenge for the provincial title.  Sadly, it was a loss, albeit a close one, with only 2 points separating them from the winning Calgary Canucks.  Thank you for all your hard work this season!  We look forward to another exceptional season of rugby in 2015!ERU Champions
