May 11th will be the annual awards dinner. This is the time to drink and celebrate with your mates. The location will be announced shortly!
Courtesy of our resident party planner extraordinaire, Social Convenor Tammy Breen, the Toronto Saracens annual Awards Banquet was held on May 7, 2016 at Scallywags. A good time was had by all!
Glad to announce that we had a successful Saracens Day on June 18, 2016. Alumni, friends, and family all came out to enjoy a beautiful day of Rugby at Fletcher’s Field where all the Women’s and Men’s team hosted their opponents on and off the pitch!
Special thanks to Tammy, Geoff, amd Rob L. for organizing the menu/hosting!
Starting May 16 (2016 Season) training is held at Sunnybrook Park.
Practice will be held at Sunnybrook, rain or shine. So make sure you bring running shoes if it’s raining.
As told by Al Graham, Saracens Alumni & past Club President:
“So how is this for a rugby experience……
The match, St Vincent vs Jamaica, took place in St Vincent on Sat 05 March and the referee was none other than Nigel Owens, the No 1 referee in the world!!! Nigel was the referee for the Rugby World Cup final at Twickenham last October. Apparently, the referee who does the Rugby World Cup final is offered as a perk the first game of the subsequent World Cup.
I flew over to St Vincent from Grenada on the Friday night and returned on Sunday morning – it is only a 30 minute flight. I met up with Nigel Owens and the assistant referees at their hotel on Saturday morning for a briefing before the game. One of the assistant referees was from the Caymen Islands and the other from Trinidad. Then I got ride with them to Cricket/ Rugby Ground, got changed and set up with radios with them in the dressing room. With the World Rugby game organizer, I assisted them with keeping track on the yellow cards (sin-bin) and the injury replacements/substitutes.
