Steve Woods will lead the pack as the team’s head coach, something Woods has experience in, having coached the NPSS’s previous rugby team twice before.
The rugby team will take this year’s season seriously, holding practice twice a week, both Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8 p.m., along with the addition of games.
The local rugby club will face Grande Prairie in its season opener, Thursday, May 3. The game will begin at 5:30 p.m. at North Peace Secondary School.
The last time Fort St. John had a rugby team was back in 2002.
