The Ontario Arrows continue their road journey by travelling to Pine Banks Park in Malden, Massachusetts this weekend to face the Boston Mystics Rugby Club.
The Arrows downed MLR side Utah Warriors in Salt Lake City two weeks ago and coach Chris Silverthorn says he wants to see more of the same from the Ontario side.
“We need to duplicate our first half in Utah against a big physical Boston side,” he explained. “We haven’t had an 80-minute performance yet, but we are getting there.”
Boston, for their part, faced Rugby United New York in a recent home-and-home, losing 0-50 away and 24-42 at home.
The Arrows welcome in capped winger Kainoa Lloyd (Mississauga Blues) and hooker Martial Lagain (Sherbrooke Abenakis) for their first Arrows run out of the season.
NOTICE: Game time has been brought forward to 4 pm ET, and there is no stream planned.
