This scrum is for fun, as Prince Rupert Seamen host Social Saturday night

An opportunity for North Coast residents with an interest in Rugby to learn more about the sport in the region takes place Saturday night at the HUB, as the Prince Rupert Seamen Rugby Club host a Public Social at the downtown club with a start time of 8 PM.

Admission is free to the event which features the music of Replica, and offers would be scrummers the chance to find out just what the Rugby Club is all about.

The current season is in its final month, with about 20 members currently signed up as members of the squad, with the club looking to add to its membership.

Team member George Baker, who trades in media scrums  on behalf of the CBC during the day for rugby ones in the evenings, provided a short sketch of the Seamen season which starts in early April and runs until late August, noting that the team tries to participate in three or four tournaments a year, travelling to Edmonton, Calgary or Vancouver to take on some competition.

The squad has hopes of returning to the Central Interior Rugby League to join up with already established teams from Williams Lake, Terrace and Prince George.

Towards that goal they are actively looking to increase their membership, the average number of members for other clubs appears to be around the 40 man level, with the Seamen hoping to at least add another five to ten members for the moment to the current roster.

You can check out what the sport is all about tomorrow at 5 PM at Patullo Park when team members work on some of their skills and have a bit of fun on pitch, the team then heads to the Hub on Second Avenue West later in the evening for the Social where you can learn more about their plans for the rest of this season and for next year as well.

You can learn more about the local club and their plans from their Facebook page
