ONTARIO BLUES – SENIOR MEN

Program Information

About the Team  The Ontario Blues are the senior men’s representative rugby team for Rugby Otnario. They were founded in 2009 to compete in the Americas Rugby Championship (ARC) against other representative teams from Canada, Argentina, and the United States.

In 2010, Rugby Canada changed the format of the Canadian competition of the ARC, introducing the Canadian Rugby Championships (CRC). The four Canadian teams which competed in the ARC stayed the same, representing the four CRC sides. The Blues went on to win four straight Canadian Rugby Championships (MacTier Cup) from 2011 to 2014 during a stretch where they had 19 wins and one loss over three seasons. They have won two MacTier Cups since – in 2016 and 2018.
