The Saints will be in Surrey on Wednesday (May 7) to battle the Elgin Park Orcas while Poppy draws the Robert Bateman Timberwolves in Abbotsford. That game is also on May 7.

The Redhawks senior boys’ rugby team is also in action this week, hosting the Southridge Storm on Thursday (May 8) at D.W. Poppy Secondary in the Fraser Valley AA semifinals.
