A group of local rugby players traveled to Vancouver for some exhibition rugby last month.

Codi Harrigan, Nick Searle, Willie Budzinski and Jeff Zeiler made the trip out west to play old boys (35-and-older) rugby, as well as to watch an international 7s rugby tournament.

Harrigan said one of the players usually goes every year and former Dauphin Maverick Bernie Dowhan had reached out, asking if they would be making the trip this year.

“And if we would play with them on their team. So that’s how it came about. We offered it up to the team and we got four takers,” he said.

The four Mavericks played a game, Feb. 23, using old boys rules.
