July 8-9, 2017 over 160 junior athletes from across Saskatchewan travelled to Brandon, Manitoba to square off against our neighbours to the East. Our players, coaching staff, and fans came out in full force despite the hot weather.

This Sask squad was the largest ever sent out of province featuring boys U14, U16, and U18 teams as well as girls U18 teams. This was also the first time Sask has ever fielded a U14 squad, who represented us extremely well in Manitoba.

First place finishes of the weekend include the U16 Boys Regina Selects who ended the tournament with a 2-0 record for gold, NSRU Wolverines also swept the U18 Boys division earning gold, and Senior Men Sask team that won both games over Manitoba. Other medal finishes include the Selects U18 Girls team with silver and Selects U18 Boys with bronze. The U16 NSRU boys team, U18 NSRU girls team, and U14 Sask boys team ended with fourth place finishes and had some great, hard fought games. Full results are available below.

Congratulations to all ManSask athletes for their achievements, Sask Rugby is proud to have such a committed and enthusiastic membership.

Sask Rugby would also like to extend a huge thank you to all the coaches who dedicated countless hours to these players and parents who supported their rugby successes.

The weekend is best summed up by Team Saskatchewan coach Richard Brindley who said, "This was by far the greatest rugby weekend Sask Rugby has been involved in in recent years and after what I saw, it's only going to get better!"

Next on the docket is the Prairie Showcase Tournament hosted by the SRU at the Regina Rugby Club July 15-16, 2017. Here, selected players from North and South teams will combine to form Team Saskatchewan and compete in 2 games against Manitoba per division. Divisions include: U16 boys, U18 boys, and U18 girls. Full schedule and rosters to come later this week.
