About the Book
One season in and fed up with hanging around the touchline while this enthusiastic young gang of rugby players went through their skills development, I stepped up to join Martyn Bentley and Glen Kerr in coaching the boys. After a few years, too many business trips away forced me to pull back but I stayed in contact with the junior program through photographing their games. In 2017, I started photographing the senior sides and writing match reports.
In the 2018 season, the quinquagenary or 50th anniversary of the Canucks, I conducted 40 interviews and photographed some of the Old Boys and current athletes in over a dozen club games plus some Wolfpack and Team Canada international games involving players or ex-players. Here is the product, a celebration, in words and images, of the Calgary Canucks: Fifty Years of Rugby.
