The 2019 rugby season was a big one for Calgary Canucks and many memorable moments were captured by me on camera. The 1st XV won the Alberta Cup (Division 1 Championship) for the first time in 16 years (and the first time ever in the play-off version that exists now). Winning the final against Strathcona Druids at Ellerslie Park, Edmonton was achieved after success against the Rams in the Calgary City final the previous week.

The Thirsty Thirds also made it to the Division 3 final against Leduc Crude but were unable to add to their victory against the Rams in the Calgary City final.

The Canucks 2nd XV also made it to the Calgary City final, going down to a strong Hornets side.
