2013 Annual Alumni Game

AlumniGame2013Stags – we had another successful day of Stags vs Dino’s rugby at the CRU this past weekend.  It was a great day for rugby, mid 20s, clear blue sky and very little wind.  As in past years the agenda for the day was the alumni game first followed by Dino’s vs MRU in an exhibition game.  For the alumni game I once again cornered the referee to outline our old boys vs the young guns rules and he was very receptive to the ‘when in doubt favor the old guys’ rule!  We started as always with some touch before going to full contact except for the scrums which were un-contested.  Both the touch and contact games were very entertaining back and forth affairs which were won by the Stags.  We were a few players short so did make use of some of the ‘soon to be Stags’ Dino’s.  We had about 3 or 4 subs while the Dino’s had 20 + players to draw from on the sidelines.  We are again blessed with some 60 – 70 players in the Dino’s camp this year.  Alumni present were, from the 70s, Dean Kittleson, Al Laberge, Bob Moody, Dex Nelson and John Pearce.  The majority of the Stags were graduates from early to mid 2000s and were Scott Appleby, Allan Arndt, Zac Borrows, Will Cuthbert, Kevin Duffy, Dan Gadicke, Sean Gibson, Andy Gossen, Taylor Graham, Jinxy Long, Dave Lougheed, Mitch McLeod, Tyler Ogilvie, Bruno Payette, Martin Rejman, Graham Selwood and Ian Thorner.  If I missed anyone I apologize.
