(April 8th, 2022) – We are pleased to announce that Atlantic Super League Rugby will be back for the 2022. Reformed in 2018, the Super League created a crucial bridge between club, CRC, and National team play. Senior Men’s & Women’s teams representing the NS Keltics, PEI Abbies and New Brunswick Spruce as well as Newfoundland Rock men will have round robin play through April and May. For the men the season is culminating in final matches played in Newfoundland on May 22nd.
“It is great to see the return of the Atlantic Super League to provide a higher level of competition to showcase the talent bases in the Atlantic region. The full schedule in 2022 is a welcome return and the players are excited to take the pitch and show the work out in over the last 2 years.” said Rugby NS President, Chad Mahoney.
In his first season, Sr. Women’s Head Coach Matt Melanson echoed the sentiments: “We’re excited to get going and to have the opportunity to compete over a full season full of fixtures. It will give us a chance to balance keeping our high performance players engaged and prepared while also working younger players into the squad.”
