In the passage to the change rooms at historic MacDonald Park is a large mural – displaying JBAA’s twenty-four BC Championship Trophies – the year of each emblazoned thereupon. At practice and home games, our players glance at this Champions’ Mural going to and from the field – and in ways big and small, reflect on the Navy Blue athletes from the 127 years before, upon whose shoulders present-day players stand. On Monday, graphic artists from the Victoria Department of Parks will add a record 25th Rounsfell Cup to the Mural on the Wall.

Burnaby Lake 26 @ James Bay AA 21 – MacDonald Park

The legend of the downhill slope at MacDonald Park continues. The Bays were ahead 18-7 when they had the slope in the first half, Burnaby were 19-3 in the 2nd half with the slope. 37 points scored at one end, 10 at the other – it could just be coincidence – yeah right. It was a great game though, the type of game that should be played in a stadium enjoyed by a few thousand spectators, not by a few hundred at a city park. Rugby is a great spectator sport and clubs need to bring in more revenue, changes they are a comin’.
