Rugby Seamen head inland for Prince George tournament

The road beckons once again for the Prince Rupert Seamen this weekend, as the North Coast Rugby team heads to Prince George this weekend for the launch of the 2017 Central Interior Rugby Union season.

The local side got off to a rough start in their initial scrum of a new season, dropping an exhibition match last weekend in Terrace.

Saturday the hometown Northmen putting a wallop on the short staffed Rupertites by a score of 59-24, a result which gives the Seamen some indication as to where they need to work on their game.

The regular season icebreaker in Prince George, hosted by the local Gnats, will herald the return of the Seamen to the competitive Central Interior League. The weekend event is one that has caught the attention of the Central Interior, where they take the sport quite seriously and it boasts of some strong interest.

Joining the Seamen on the road to PG and set to match up with the Gnats, will be the Northmen from Terrace, Williams Lake Rustlers and Penticton Harlequins
