2016 Youth Rugby Slide Show

Glen Freeman of St. Albert created this fabulous slide show. Glen wrote "Couldn't sleep, so I threw together a little slide show for the 2016 season. If I have under-represented a certain demographic: I'm terribly sorry. If I have over-represented my kids: Yup. It's my camera, and I love them best. And I love rugby best, too. What a sport!
