The McKechnie Cup, Dunbar Keg and Ruth Hellerud-Brown Cups are three historic regional Rugby Cup competitions within British Columbia.
Teams from South Vancouver Island (Tide), North Vancouver Island (Tsunami), Vancouver (Wave) and Fraser Valley compete for both pride and coveted silverware in a round-robin format each year.
The competitions pit the top athletes from each region against one another in Senior Men, Senior Women and U23 Men groups.
Senior Men compete for the McKechnie Cup, one of the oldest contested trophies throughout British Columbia and Canada. Dating back to 1896, the trophy was donated by Nanaimo physician Dr. Robert McKechnie and was originally contested by clubs from Vancouver, Nanaimo and UBC.
U20 Men’s Teams face off for the Dunbar Keg, one of the highest accolades in regional Rugby.
As well as the honour of lifting silverware, players will be hoping to impress to improve their chances of being selected to out Provincial Representative Team, the BC Bears.
