WOLF PACK DOWN TYEE IN REMATCH
- Submitted by
The Prairie Wolf Pack have defeated the Pacific Tyee by a score of 45-19 on a beautiful sunny day at the Calgary Rugby Park.  

Both teams showed a marked improvement on the game last week which had little flow or structure to it.  The Tyee side made a number of changes which were both rotational and tactical and they came out with a bit more purpose and attacking flair as well as having shored up their porous defence from a week ago.

Clearly this is a young Tyee team, and despite their slower start showed patches of rugby which marks a team on the ‘up and up’.    

The Wolf Pack also addressed a number of issues from the first game and were slightly more successful at the lineout and in phase play defence.  The makeup of the squad was altered a bit with injuries to Christian Wolff and Nick Blevins, who were replaced by Stephen Woodward and Josh Hart respectively.  Hart slotted into the wing and Adam Bontus moved back to his more familiar role in the midfield alongside stalwart Mozac Sampson.
The Pack ‘pack’ who had dominated the young Tyee side last week was left unchanged and led by national team member Andrew Tiedemann.    

The story of the day was again the dominance at the set piece and while the Tyee were valiant, they could not match up to the strength and power of the Wolf Pack first 8.  

Standout’s on the day included Tyler Hawes, Eric Lopatinsky (2 try’s), Josh Hart (2 try’s) and Brodie Henderson of the Pacific side.  

Both teams will focus on recovery and rest as they build towards a big weekend of rugby to follow.  The Pack now travel east for 2 games in 4 days against the Rock (St. John’s) and the Blues (Oakville).

As an aside, in a match that was filled with current, former and future national team members, there was a definite level of play above and beyond the best club rugby could offer anywhere across the country.  If this level continues, the CRC will further develop into a launching pad for all those players who are willing to show they can commit to rep. rugby and stretch their abilities beyond their normal comfort level.

It goes to show that the CRC has extreme relevancy for the entire nation (coast to coast) and it is good to see that there is a strong level of buy-in to support a league which gives those engaged players the platform they need to reach their goals.
