ABBOTSFORD — Small in stature, small in numbers, but on the day, Abbotsford’s Robert Bateman Timberwolves showed themselves to be huge in heart as the B.C. boys high school rugby championships opened up a four-day run at their hometown Rotary Stadium complex.
“It’s one of the smallest teams we’ve ever had, but so full of courage and with so much resilience,” coach Stephen Rowell said proudly after No. 8 Matt Calderone stole the ball deep and spun it out wide to fellow senior and outside centre Ethan Kupsch for the winning points in a 22-17 victory over Richmond’s R.A. McMath Wildcats.
