Calgary Rugby Union, like the rest of Calgary, was a pretty wet place on Saturday. By game time, the rain was still driving hard and the nicely functional wet weather gear made by ThinkTank was on my cameras to take in the action between Calgary Canucks and Saints.

A couple of items stood out in this game in the rain. Hosam Mobarak was jumping high in the lineout as a second-row man rather than his usual position in the backs. Nick Taylor made his senior Canucks debut and celebrated with a nice break away from 40 meters out to score under the posts.

The game went the way of the Canucks who ran in six tries (Nathan Pratt, Nick Taylor, Ruaraidh Smith, Chad Spence, Olly White plus one other) to a single try from the Saints resulting in a final score of 34-7.

Congratulations on getting your Canucks 1st XV cap and tie, Nick.
