B.C. High School Rugby XV’s: The top three players at every position for the 2017 season!

SURREY — Who are B.C.’s top high school rugby talents in the 15-man game?

With the XVs coming off a successful championship weekend, Varsity Letters is happy to be able to present the B.C. Secondary Schools Rugby Union’s three-deep, the top three players at each position as selected by the BCSSRU’s Adam Roberts.

Keep in mind, a key goal here was to try to represent the best players in the province, mindful of the fact that restrictions are often times brought on by actual positions.

If any certain player’s position doesn’t fully jibe with where he spent the majority of his season, the end in mind for the BCSSRU was to do the best job possible in representing the top players. As usual, touch choices had to be made.

Locks, centres and wings have been listed as Top Six.
