Burnaby Lake RFC claimed two victories and three losses from its five regional fixtures, although two defeats proved very tight contests. Following an opening 29-13 defeat against the returning Seattle RFC, Burnaby defeated Vancouver Rowing Club 31-19 before falling to UBCOB Ravens 44-38. Next came a close 37-33 defeat to Capilano RFC, before Burnaby finished on a high with a 23-22 victory against Meraloma RFC at Connaught Park.
The Pacific Pride, Rugby Canada’s Development Academy side, finished 4-2 in its regional side against other Lower Mainland university programs. The Pride kicked off with a 56-28 win over defending Premier League champions UBC Thunderbirds, before falling 37-26 to a much-improved Trinity Western University team. A 31-26 victory over UVIC Vikes restored Pride confidence, then followed by a 55-8 revenge win against the Spartans. Pride completed its double over UVIC with a 17-15 win in Regional Week 5 but lost out 27-22 to UBC in its final match ahead of the regular season.
