When the score seems to be the last thing that matters

The Prince Rupert Seamen travelled to Prince George over the weekend to take part in the UNBC Wolfpack Rugby tournament, an opportunity to seek out some out of town competition, return the travel favour of those PG teams that make the trek to Rupert from time to time for friendlies and to build up the sport of rugby across Northern BC.

And as can be seen in a Prince George Citizen article on the weekend activities, while the scoreboard final results weren't particularly close, neither were they particularly important, the respect that the Prince George teams have for their Terrace and Prince Rupert competitors is in the end probably the main part of playing the sport and hosting the event.

With fall heralding the end of the rugby season, the Seamen can begin to make their plans for the 2010 campaign, knowing that there is always a game to be had all be it after an eight hour ride down the highway.
