Prince of Wales beats Magee

November 4th, 1975 — Prince of Wales in black playing Magee at Quilchena Park in a Vancouver city high school rugby game. Prince of Wales defeated the previously unbeaten Magee 6-4. It’s taken a long time to track down the details of this game as the pictures never ran in the paper, just the story, which is a shame.

Quick repair

March 1977 — It was half time at a rugby game at the University of BC stadium and a player needed an injury taped. Another example of a picture that contributes nothing to an understanding of the game but still, has to be taken.
