Centaurs Weekend Update – This Friday, April 29th NOBS Membership Pub Night @ the Clubhouse

Rugby Enthusiasts!


This past Saturday was the Centaurs Annual Orange vs Blue inter-squad game which was held at Nelson HS.


The Centaurs had great numbers out for the event as the club looks to host THREE teams in the NRU for 2016 with the Centaurs 1st XV, the Burlington Berties, and the Centaurs 2nd XV.


Jon Goldie and his coaching staff were busy taking notes and will continue to build on their pre-season training as the Centaurs head closer to the kick-off of the season in May.

This Saturday, April 30th the Centaurs have an exhibition match at HOME on the grass rugby pitch (no more turf burn!) at Sherwood Forest (weather dependent) vs the Toronto Nomads.
