With files from The Rugby Network
Today, The Rugby Network announced that it has exclusive broadcast rights to the upcoming Coast to Coast Cup, a new high-performance development rugby event to be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada from May 28 to June 4, 2022.
The inaugural three-match day competition features the host team – the Atlantic Selects – along with the Toronto Arrows Academy and Canada West Selects, with 90 of Canada’s best domestic rugby players, the majority under the age of 25.
The Halifax-based Atlantic Selects, founded in October 2021 to continue the proud tradition of the Atlantic Rock, faced the Arrows Academy in Toronto last October and, more recently, defeated the New England Independents in Boston.
The Arrows Academy is represented by top athletes in the development stream of Major League Rugby’s Toronto Arrows. The Canada West Selects, who are coached by two-time MLR Champion Phil Mack, made their first appearance as a team last weekend in a tune up match against the American Raptors at Shawnigan Lake School on Vancouver Island.
“The Atlantic Selects are excited to partner with The Rugby Network to broadcast every match of the Coast to Coast Cup throughout North America and internationally,” said Atlantic Selects General Manager and local event lead Dr. John Gillis.
“This event brings three matches of fast, exciting rugby to Halifax, as we raise the profile of the sport and bring more big events to our city and region,” he added.
