The Ebb Tide Rugby Football Club is the oldest continuously operating Over-40 rugby club in British Columbia, Canada. We have active players between the ages of 38 and 70's and active social members well into their 80's.  Social members and visitors are welcome to join us at our regular Thursday evening run-around.  Ebb Tide is a member of the Pacific Northwest Over 40's Rugby Union.

Players are eligible to play at 38 years.

Twenty Ebb Tiders made the trip to Nanaimo Sunday to take on the Yoos To Bees. The hosts were able to field only 14 players, but Barry Wheelhouse volunteered to cross over and make it 15-aside. The cold, wet, muddy conditions made for a sloppy game with lots of errors: I’m sure the long break since our last game in November had nothing to do with it!

Harold at stand off took a nasty knock to the head, worth 9 stitches. Luckily Bob Love was on hand to provide medical support and get Harold to the hospital. Ebb Tide’s only try came from Darryl Gaudreau, the first of his rugby career, earning himself red jacket honours. Kevan Letawske in the centers did a great job containing Woody and was named man-of-the-match by Nanaimo. Dave Jack also played very well with some impressive runs.

The final score was 3-1 for Nanaimo so we left behind the Dunbar Cup, always kept by the winner of the lastest match between our two clubs.
