Three BC Premier League Teams to Challenge MLR League Houston SaberCats in January
Three BC Premier League sides will visit Houston in January for matches with the MLR team Houston SaberCats (formerly Strikers). The Houston Strikers have relabelled themselves as the Sabercats, there was an original Houston Strikers rugby club
formed in 1974 and facebook searches went to that club which may have caused some confusion. No confusion now as the SaberCats announced the name change and their schedule and a new website
The Seattle Saracens, UBCOB Ravens and James Bay will make the trip on consecutive weekends in January.
