Formed after the end of the 1971 season, the Bytown Blues Rugby Football Club have been representing the rugby community proudly over the past 44 years, on and off the pitch. The 2016 season will be no different.
With three senior men’s squads and a full junior program, the Blues have a full summer schedule and a place for any and all of those that are interested.
The Blues 1st XV and 2nd XV both play in the Quebec Rugby Federation. After a strong finish last year, the goal for the season is to gain promotion into the Quebec Premier Division. Opponents for the season will consist of teams in the Ottawa area and in western Quebec.
The Blues 3rd XV represent the club in the Eastern Ontario Rugby Union and are coming off a season that ended with a cup victory over Cornwall RFC.
In 2016, the Blues will be represented on the field by U18s, U16s and U14s. The U14s will also be field touring sides that will compete in friendly matches against teams across Ontario and Quebec.
The current squads of juniors will look to continue the tradition of success within the province. The Blues junior squads have been run very successfully over the years. In recent seasons our U16s and U18s have finished on top of their respective leagues. The U18s have played in the Ontario Rugby Championships multiple times, while the U16s have also played in the Ontario Rugby Championship.
Twin Elm Rugby Park
Home to the Blues since it was built, Twin Elm Rugby Park hosts all of our home games throughout the year. With five rugby fields, 12 changing rooms, two lounges, a bar and spectator seating for hundreds of people, Twin Elm is a unique sports facility. This great facility is home to several local clubs and the representative sides for Eastern Ontario.
