(WINDSOR, ON) – With the end of the end of the rugby season in August, a 33-7 Rogue win over Kent, fans have been chomping at the bit for the 2016 season. Even the 2015 Rugby World Cup, held in England and Wales and ending on October 31 with a 34-17 New Zealand win over Australia, couldn’t give them the fix they were needing.

To tide rugger fans over until next year, the Windsor Rogues have staged an exhibition match vs Queen’s University Law School this Saturday at Windsor Stadium.

With the kick off scheduled for 6:00 pm, the Rogues will welcome the Tortfeasors to town for a friendly that will feature a non-contact junior game at half time. The match will fill the rugby need for fans as well as provide those new to the sport an opportunity to learn more about rugby in Windsor.

The Rogues compete in a 10-game season with the Niagara Rugby Union, each year. They trace their lineage back to Assumption College of the 1960s, but the Rogues, themselves, have existed since the mid 1980s, after the merging of competing clubs.

This free event is being sponsored by the Hogarth-Hermiston-Severs law firm.
