(TORONTO, ON) – The Ontario Arrows have announced their starting roster for their historic first home match. The match takes place this Saturday, April 14 at York University’s Alumni Stadium against Major League Rugby Associate Club Rugby United New York. Kick-off is at 4:30pm.

In their last matchup, a young Arrows team fell 36-19 to New York at Iona College on March 17, 2018. The Arrows will look to rebound in this contest with a home crowd behind them.
