High Performance Men’s Rugby Returns To Nova Scotia



Halifax, NS (May 10, 2022) Rugby Nova Scotia, in partnership with the Toronto Arrows Academy and Rugby

Canada, is pleased to announce the Coast to Coast Cup, a new high performance development men’s rugby

event to be held in Halifax May 28 to June 4, 2022.

The tournament will feature host team the Atlantic Selects along with the Toronto Arrows Academy and Canada

West Selects, with 90 of Canada’s best domestic rugby players, the majority under the age of 25.

The Halifax-based Atlantic Selects, founded in October 2021 to continue the proud tradition of the Atlantic Rock,

faced the Arrows in Toronto last October and, more recently, defeated the New England Independents in

Boston. The Arrows Academy is represented by top athletes in the development stream of Major League Rugby’s

Toronto Arrows. The Canada West Selects will be making their first appearance as a team when they take to the

field for a tune up match against the American Raptors on May 14.

“This event brings three matches of fast, exciting rugby to Halifax, as we raise the profile of the sport and bring

more big events to our city and region, “said Atlantic Selects General Manager and local event lead Dr. John


“More games at this level will make all of our up-and-coming players better and pave a renewed development

pathway to both Major League Rugby and our National Programs,” added Phil Mack, the

Canada West Head Coach.

“This level of high performance play is what helps build rugby at the grassroots community level,” says Halifax based

Rugby Canada board member Phil Otto. “I’m excited for what this event will do to help build the rugby

brand in our region and encourage kids to remain engaged in rugby.”
