Big win

60-5 win over RMC

Head coach Peter Huigenbos returned to Kingston from a four-game hiatus in time for men’s rugby’s 60-5 win over the Royal Military College Paladins last Friday.

Huigenbos was in New Zealand with Team Canada for the Rugby World Cup, working as the team’s video coach. With Huigenbos’ return, interim coach Garry Gilks will return to his role as assistant coach.

The Gaels sit in second place in the OUA behind the Western Mustangs.

Fly-half Liam Underwood scored 15 points to become top OUA scorer with 46 points, while winger Stephen Rowlands scored in his debut.

Inside centre George Gleeson said the Gaels have to improve before they play OUA playoff contenders like the Brock Badgers. The team missed opportunities for possession and made mental mistakes that led to penalties.

The Gaels beat the Badgers 29-20 in last year’s OUA bronze medal game. Gilks said his team will have to play strong defensively to repeat that result this weekend in St. Catherines.
