Wolf Pack Host Royal Air Force Rugby in Final Pre-Season Match

CALGARY (June 14, 2018) - The Wolf Pack conclude their exhibition season with a match against the Royal Airforce Rugby Union on Friday, June 15, 2018 at the Calgary Rugby Park. The Royal Air Force competes in the Interservice Rugby Competition in England. Gates open at 5:30 PM and kick off is 7:00 PM.

The Wolf Pack is coming off disappointing losses in two previous exhibition matches against the Seattle Seawolves and Utah Warriors of Major League Rugby. “Our pre-season results provided our players with a clear picture of where their game needs to be at to be able to compete at this level. The Royal Air Force squad will be very competitive and we will need to be in form to be able to secure a win,” said Jim Kazakoff, manager of the Wolf Pack.

The 2018 Canadian Rugby Championship competition — featuring the Atlantic Rock, BC Bears, Ontario Blues and Prairie Wolf Pack —has the Wolf Pack Playing the 2017 CRC Champion BC Bears in a home and home series. The Rock and the Blues will also engage in a home and home series. These matches will determine seeding for the championship round.
