The prospect of a tour to Canada – the first in over 40 years – has really ignited enthusiasm among the whole senior squad. We had a brilliant season winning club of the year 2022 and have big ambitions to achieve even more in the 22-23 season. It will be an unbelievable experience for the squad of 44 players and there could be no better way for players and coaches to prepare for the incoming year
Following a fantastic domestic season, Queen's Rugby Club will commence a tour of Canada. The first of its kind in over forty years, this an exciting opportunity to bring a top-quality squad to compete against university sides and senior local clubs in Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa.
Previous tours have included players who went on to become giants of the game and whose names are synonymous with Ulster, Ireland, the Lions and Queen’s Hall of Fame. Trevor Ringland, David Irwin, Dick Milliken and Jack Kyle to name but a few.
We will be using the tour to prepare for the coming season and to showcase our sporting talent so we can guarantee some great matches and challenges. You can follow the progress of the tour via the Queen's Rugby social channels.
