Gold Senior Men v Gunnedah New South Wales March 16 2019

The Wolf Pack is the Prairies Region team that competes in the Canadian Rugby Championship (CRC).

The ERU hosted the Emily Murphy Cup at the Ellerslie Rugby Park on Sunday May 20, 2018. 

There were both senior and U20 players in the match, a great game of rugby with some terrific tries from both teams. The GOLD team took the trophy defeating the Mavericks 49-38.

Thank you to the players and coaches who made this happen.
