[article via The Globe and Mail]
The Toronto Arrows have become Canada’s first professional rugby union side.
The Arrows, a beefed-up offshoot of the Ontario Blues regional squad that plays in the Canadian Rugby Championship, will begin play in Major League Rugby in 2019.
Season 2 of the North American league will kick off in January with nine teams: Austin (Texas), Houston, Glendale (Colorado), New Orleans, Rugby United New York, San Diego, Seattle, Salt Lake City and Toronto.
Arrows co-founder Bill Webb’s investor group includes former NHL executive Brian Burke, now a TV hockey pundit. A member of Rugby Canada’s board of directors, Burke is a fan of the sport who started playing rugby as a law student.
