BU on Tour in New Brunswick

Happy Thanksgiving Gaiters!

We are now halfway through the semester and I start to wonder where the time has gone. Many of you have already begun midterms and are probably looking forward to taking a break from classes to enjoy some Thanksgiving Day turkey and good company. I myself spent the weekend in New Brunswick with the rest of the Bishop’s rugby team.

The Bishop’s rugby team was invited to Fredericton for the University of New Brunswick’s rugby reunion. We left early Friday morning and traveled by bus for about nine and a half hours. The trip was long but eventful. Saturday we played the 2012 New Brunswick rugby champions, UNB, in two very exciting matches: the A side won 25-15 and the B’s won 21-17. UNB was incredibly welcoming. Their players served as billets for all of our players (42 in total), invited us to attend their rugby reunion banquet, and took us out for drinks afterward. All in all, the weekend was a blast! It was good for our team’s confidence and a great bonding experience as well. I look forward to playing the rest of this season with this great group of guys.

Hopefully everyone has enjoyed his or her weekend as much as I have. Beginning Tuesday its back to reality with an exam filled week.

Until next time, Cheers!
