Round 1 starts this Saturday for the 2016 McCormick Cup.
The McCormick Cup is a long-standing tradition in Ontario rugby; a term synonymous with Rugby Ontario. The Cup is the title championship for Rugby Ontario’s Marshall Premiership & Championship Senior Men’s First Teams, along with the annual EORU Champion.
The Cup is named for former Rugby Ontario President Vic McCormick, one of the great builders of the sport in our province and a member of the Rugby Ontario Hall of Fame (Class of ’01).
Since replacing the Carling Cup in 1982, the McCormick Cup has been hoisted 11 times by Balmy Beach, six times by Ottawa Irish, and six times by the Irish Canadians / Markham Irish.
Congratulations to our Senior Men’s teams. A combined record of 26-1-1. First place for both the 1st and 2nd XV. Lindsay 1st XV ended up in a tie for first with London, but end up first over all on the tie breaker, outscoring London 39 to 36 in head to head games. Great work gentlemen!!
Message from Erin Geddes:
I just wanted to take the time to thank everyone who has supported me since finding out I was selected for u20 Canada team and those who have been there for me since day one. I can’t even put into words how thankful and appreciative I am of all the donations and kind words passed onto me over these past two weeks including the generous donation from LRFC. I am beyond grateful to be apart of such an amazing club, whose generosity and support over the years has helped me grow into the player I am today. I wouldn’t want to call anywhere else home. ❤️
I learned so much and I will never forget those who helped me get to where I am now. I was able to fully fund my tour cost through the help of my family, friends, and the Lindsay Rugby club. For that, I am eternally grateful.
Looking back, this was such an amazing opportunity and I am so thankful to have experienced it with such a great group of girls and coaches.
Forever a Lady G,
One of our women’s team players, Erin Geddes, was selected a few weeks ago to represent the Canadian u20 team that is currently traveling in England until the 27th of this month. The Canadian girls are playing in a 3 game test series against the England opposition.
This is an amazing opportunity for Erin, but was not covered by Rugby Canada and took a lot of fundraising so she could be a part of the tour.
The Lindsay Rugby Club was more than happy to support Erin in her journey, as the club donated $500.00 towards her fundraising efforts.

Next Saturday is our end of summer bash and we have rightfully named it ENDER BENDER 2.0.
A number of our younger men and women players are heading back to school and no better way to send them off then with a full day of rugby, entertainment, drinks, and good times with friends.
The day will feature 3 games in total:
DINNER – starts at roughly 6pm and details are still being figured out. More to come…
ENTERTAINMENT – starts at 8pm and Westerby Entertainment will be rockin’ the club with a variety of great tunes and their always popular video screens will be in full force.
* Tickets for the entertainment will be $5.00 each and only sold night of the event at the door
●PLEASE NOTE: Starting at 8pm this will be an age of majority event.
This promises to be a great day, so please pass the word and hope to see everyone out for an awesome day!
Any questions please contact Brett Moxley or Greg Buckley
Sunday is our night for Bingo Bingo to support the junior programes at the club. As a revenue generation, it has been the mainstay of the juniors but is in decline. We need to support Bingo, so consider once or twice this season to get a group of friends together and go to Bingo Bingo on a Sunday. See our calendar here.
