A trio of Peninsula rugby players are headed to Calgary later this month, and will suit up for Team BC at national rugby championships.

Both Calixto Martinez, who plays prop for both Earl Marriott Secondary and the Bayside Sharks, and Semiahmoo’s Alex Klassen, who plays scrum-half, were named this month to B.C.’s U16 ‘A’ team, while Southridge School fly-half Nick Collett was chosen for the province’s ‘B’ team.

Making the appointments even more impressive are the fact that both Martinez and Collett are one year under the age limit, and will be eligible to play on the U16 team again next year.

The National Rugby Festival runs in Calgary from Aug. 15-21.
