The official release from BCRU is posted below, and gives all the details of this traditional Island v Mainland rivalry -a rivalry that has played such an integral part in the development and history of competitive rugby in both BC and Canada.

We feel most fortunate to be promoting this event on Vancouver Island, and as always, we are relying on the collective support of the media to give maximum exposure to the Island community for this special, and highly significant sports event.
