0211 burgess2 2 jpgLower Vancouver Island Senior Boys Rugby will honour the late Don Burgess with the establishment of a memorial trophy in his name. The trophy will be presented for the first time in May of this year, and recognize the most outstanding local high school player from the 2018 season.

Burgess, who passed away February 6 at the age of 85, was an absolute legend of the game, as a player, coach, administrator and innovator.

Educated at Vic High and then Western Washington University, Burgess went on to teach and coach at both Mt. Newton JSS and then Parkland SS for 32 years. He made a hugely positive impact on literally generations of students and players.

An outstanding rugby player himself, Burgess toured the UK with Canada in 1962, winning headlines in the British press for his superb performances. Two years later, he was part of history, with his contributions critical in British Columbia's famous 8-3 win over the touring British Lions.

At every level, including with his beloved Oak Bay Wanderers, he was renowned for his side stepping ability, deadly accurate kicking and crunching tackles.

Don Burgess / Times Colonist

There wasn’t a pair of uprights Don Burgess couldn’t clinically slice right through the heart.

Burgess, one of Canada’s greatest rugby kickers, influenced hundreds of young players as a coach and invented the Burge kicking tee. He died Tuesday at age 85.

He competed at the club, Island, provincial, national and international levels and was inducted into both the B.C. and Victoria sports halls of fame. He played 17 games for Canada and was the national team fullback through much of the 1960s, when Test matches were rare.

Brent Johnston, manager of the Castaway Wanderers club and former national team manager, said Burgess “was as good, if not better, in his era” than D.T.H. van der Merwe, the all-time Test tries leader for Canada.

Last year’s junior provincials featured an 8 team format. This year we are maintaining that 8 team format.

Berths for provincial quarter finals will be allocated accordingly. Quarter Final matchups are pre-determined to ensure as much cross pollination between zones, ranking accuracy, but most importantly equitable and fair travel. All teams furthest from Abbotsford will host the Quarter Final in their region at a neutral site. These sites are still to be finalized. Quarter Finals will be played on Saturday May 26.

  • Game A            1) Island #1                        vs           8) LM #3/Valley #3          @ UVIC                    2:00 PM KO
  • Game B            2) Valley #1                         vs           7) Okanogan #1              @ Parkinsons Field    2:30 PM KO
  • Game C            3) LM #1                             vs           6) Valley #2                    @ UBC                     2:00 PM KO
  • Game D            4) LM #2                             vs           5) Island #2                    @ UVIC                   4:00 PM KO

The winners of the quarter finals will advance to the semi-finals in Abbotsford, while the unsuccessful quarter finalists will not advance any further. The second round of games will be played on Wednesday May 30 at Rotary Stadium and the surrounding fields.

  • Game E Winner of A                        vs            Winner of D       KO TBD
  • Game F Winner of B                        vs            Winner of C        KO TBD

The Final Round of Matches will be played in Rotary Stadium on Friday June 1.

  • Game G Loser of E                          vs            Loser of F           KO TBD
