Championship rugby match gets postponed

The Nanaimo Hornets and Port Alberni Black Sheep are now hoping to play this Saturday (Dec. 17) at 1 p.m. at Pioneer Park.

The Nanaimo Hornets can’t be beaten this fall, except by the weather.

A frozen pitch at May Richards Bennett Pioneer Park forced the postponement of a Vancouver Island championship match that had been scheduled for this past Saturday. Clive Stocks, Hornets coach, said the field conditions were unsafe.

The Hornets and Port Alberni Black Sheep hope to play this Saturday (Dec. 17) at 1 p.m. at Pioneer Park, but failing that, the match will be postponed until mid-January. Fans are asked to keep an eye on the club’s Facebook page.
