Following a fantastic season on the pitch that saw the MIRFC firsts win the Quebec Premier League Championship and the MIRFC seconds win the Quebec Premier League Reserve Championship, we are thrilled to annouce that Rugby Quebec will be sending a provincial elite team to compete in the Las Vegas Sevens. No less than 5 MIRFC players have been selected for this provincial side! This means that our club is better represented than any other club in the province.
5 MIRFC PLAYERS HAVE BEEN SELECTED FOR THIS PROVINCIAL SIDE
MIRFC PLAYERS WERE SELECTED TO PLAY WITH THE DOG RIVER HOWLERS
This achievement is the latest in a string of high profile achievements for MIRFC at the elite rugby level. Recently, 4 MIRFC players were selected to play with the Dog River Howlers rugby club in a very competitive tournament in Barbados. Those same four players were selected to play at the New York 7s tournament with the Quebec provincial team, losing the “elite” final by a mere 5 points to a U.S. Olympic development side. Lastly, one of our very own was selected to play with the Canadian Maple Leafs 7s team, a Canadian Olympic development side that is touring South America.

In order to help fundraise for the Rugby Quebec side going to Las Vegas, we are having a “Disco Bowling” night on Saturday, January 24th. The details are below. It should be a really fun evening! I hope we can count on your support for this fun evening!
