Fall 2015 Preliminary-Round Schedule Released

The Richmond Rugby Football Club is pleased to announce its Fall 2015 preliminary round schedule. The team continues in 2015 as a member of the Okanagan Spring Brewery Lower Mainland League 1 and 2 where they will face-off against some familiar foes in September and October as the senior men's rugby season kicks into high gear.

The club heads down highway-99 to face the Bayside Sharks to open the season September 19th at South Surrey Athletic Park, followed by a visit to Sullivan Heights to take on the Surrey Beavers on September 26th.

Richmond's first home date is October 3rd against Abbotsford RFC, which will be the first opportunity for the club to test its new playing surface installed this summer. After the Thanksgiving break, Richmond hosts United Rugby at King George Park on October 17th followed by a final preliminary fixture against old Fraser Valley rivals, the Langley RFC at Crush Crescent on Oct 24th.

The league will continue from November to April with a full slate of home and away fixtures to determine three mainland playoff teams. The league will also see a new addition in November as one of the seven Mainland premiership sides will be relegated after their qualification tournament ends, bringing the total amount of teams to seven.

The club will announce the rest of their 2015-2016 fixtures once they are released, but for now the full focus for our players and suppourters is on these first five games! All games kick-off at 1:00PM (2nd XV) and 2:30PM (1st XV) unless otherwise posted.
