From BC Rugby News About The Canadian Classics  The Canadian Classics are comprised of players who have represented their country in International rugby competition, are over the age of 33 and are still capable of playing at a high level. Players come from all across the country and unlike over 40’s rugby; this level is highly physical, competitive and exciting to watch with many of the players currently under professional contracts and/or playing test level rugby. Canada has been represented at the Classic level by all of our World Cup Captains – De Goede, Wyatt, Rees, and Charron, along with our most capped Internationals like Scott Stewart, John Graf, Steve Gray, John Hutchinson and Winston Stanley.  The Canadian team plays yearly in a home/away fixture against either the USA or Argentina and then caps off the season with the highlight – The World Rugby Classic in Bermuda each November.

Lorne is also the the Honorary Captain of the Dog River Howlers Rugby Club.
