VRC’s Thirds lose in the shield semi-final—
The thirds will start a fresh season in February. The new spring season may see a revamped 3rd division alignment that may split the current 16-team league into two tiers -possible an eight-team ‘A’ and ‘B’ division.
VRC’s firsts (4-2) are sitting in fourth place in the log as the sixth place Beavers (3-4) look to make it two wins in a row after drubbing Seattle RFC 43-0 at home last week. The Beaver’s are hoping to move ahead of Richmond and take sole possession of fifth place with a win over the Rowers.
The Rowers’ seconds squad (5-1) are currently in third place after suffering their only defeat of the season Nov. 3. The Surrey Beavers (4-3) currently hold fourth spot in the log, four points behind the Rowers, after garnering a bonus point in a tight loss to Seattle – 24-23 – at Sullivan Heights last week. Surrey is hoping to supplant the Super Twos for third place overall with a bonus-point win.
Kick off at Surrey’s Sullivan Heights Park:
