Toronto Arrows Continue Pre-Season Preparations with Intra-Squad Scrimmage in Buffalo

13 January 2019

ORCHARD PARK, NY – It wasn’t how the Toronto Arrows expected to spend their Saturday afternoon, but following a morning accident involving the Rugby United New York team bus that prevented RUNY from making the trip to Buffalo for the scheduled pre-season match on Jan. 12, the Arrows forged on with their plans to travel to western New York.

In lieu of playing in the Major League Rugby tune-up fixture, the Arrows travelled to the Buffalo Bills Fieldhouse with enough players to run an intra-squad scrimmage.

The match was anything but lackadaisical; the free-flowing, high-tempo rugby was a showcase of things to come from the expansion side.

The two sides played a match made up of three 20-minute sessions, which was refereed by Canadian match official Moe Chaudry.
