CRL Championship Schedule Announced

The 2012 CRL Championship Schedule has been released. 4 clubs will be vying for the title of Canadian champion, and parallel to that individual players will be vying for places on the 35 man Team Canada Wolverines squad.  Hamilton let by crafty hooker Chris Diamond being the current CRL champions will be the early favourites to repeat the feat.  Their traditional rivals the Toronto City Saints let by Jamie Lester have a strong squad and will no doubt want to reverse the result of last years exciting final.  Toronto Centurions will be a much improved squad and coach Richard Moore will be counting on Captain Matt Wyles and Tyler Allen to bring experience and guile to their side.  Ottawa Rhinos boast Wolverines stalwarts Stephen "Chunky" Lamb, Cam Grace, and Stu McReynolds as well as the cream of the crop from Ottawa's strong Rugby community.

The format is a 6 round regular season and a 2 round playoffs.  After the 6 round regular season the teams will be seeded based on the standings.

 "The exciting thing about this years competition is going in its hard to predict a winner." CRL Chairman Eric Perez explained. "At this point anyone can win and with an exciting International season ahead the players will want to be at their best to impress selectors."  Highlights of all CRL Championship matches will be shown on The Rugby League Show on Sportsnet World and on the CRL website.
