Rugby showdown postponed

Game between Bayside and Burnaby Lake has been postponed until this Saturday

The battle for the B.C. Rugby Union’s last spot in the men’s premier league, which was supposed to be played Saturday in South Surrey, has been postponed.

The game between the Bayside Sharks’ and Burnaby Lake elite men’s teams will now be played this Saturday, 2:30 p.m. at South Surrey Athletic Park.

On Friday afternoon, the game was moved from South Surrey Athletic Park to Burnaby Lake after the fields at SSAP were closed due to frost and snow. Soon after, the Burnaby Lake fields were also closed, prompting the postponement.

“It works out, because this way we won’t lose our home-field advantage,” said Bayside coach Pat Kearney. “And we definitely do enjoy playing at home.

“And now we can get in a couple more practices before the big showdown.”

The winner of Saturday’s game will earn the last spot in the BCRU premier circuit this spring, while the losing team will be relegated to the first division.
