McCormick Cup CHAMPS!
MCCORMICK CUP CHAMPS!!!
3 out of 4. 3 McCormick Cup Championships in the last 4
years. This year's edition was a repeat of 2018 as the
Brantford Harlequins squared off against the Markham
Irish in the rematch we've been gunning for since the
Finals ended last year. Both teams came into the
McCormick Cup on form and the game did not disappoint,
although it did raise heartbeats.
The Quins went down a quick 0-14 as Markham used their
combination of slow ball grind + quick strike
counterattack to put us on the hind foot. A quick "chat"
under the posts - get back to our game, get back to
playing Quins rugby. And the lads did just that - as we
went to the half-time break down 12-17. More of the same
at half-time - "trust the rugby" and a few strategic
substitutions increased the pace and increased the
scoreline and shots at the goal line. But the last 3
minutes showcased the back & forth nature of these
teams. The Quins barely missed the white paint, and the
Irish were awarded a penalty on their 5 yard line. A
kick back, lineout and knock-on saw a scrum to the Irish
at the Quins 40 yard. And the Tight Five, as they have
all year, dug in, and stole the scrum at the time we
needed it most. At the 80 minute mark, the ball was in
Hugh McDonnel's hands and kicked safety to clear -
AND THE HARLEQUINS ARE THE 2019 MCCORMICK CUP CHAMPIONS by a score of 22-17!
Thank you to the Supporters that came down or watched
online. The Cup is heavy - we said we would need the
support of the whole club - and players, coaches,
supporters, parents, children, friends all had a hand in
Lifting the Cup!

Teamwork is essential to our sport. We welcome all new team members and include all because working as a team enriches our lives. We play selflessly: working for the team, not for ourselves alone, both on and off the field. We take pride in our team, rely on one another and understand that each player has a part to play. We speak out if our team or sport is threatened by inappropriate words or actions.
Mutual respect forms the basis of our sport. We hold in high esteem our sport, its values and traditions and earn the respect of others in the way we behave. We respect our match officials and accept our decisions. We respect opposition players and supporters. We value our coaches and those who run our clubs and treat clubhouses with consideration.
Enjoyment is the reason we play and support rugby union. We encourage players to enjoy training and playing. We use our sport to adopt a healthy lifestyle and build life skills. We safeguard our young players and help them have fun. We enjoy being part of a team and part of the rugby family.
Strong discipline underpins our sport. We ensure that our sport is one of controlled physical endeavour and that we are honest and fair. We obey the laws of the game which ensure an inclusive and exciting global sport. We support our disciplinary system, which protects our sport and upholds its values. We observe the sport's laws and regulations and report serious breaches.
Sportsmanship is the foundation upon which rugby union is built. We uphold the rugby tradition of camaraderie with teammates and opposition. We observe fair play both on and off the pitch and are generous in victory and dignified in defeat. We play to win but not at all costs and recognise both endeavour and achievement. We ensure that the well-being and development of individual players is central to all rugby activity.
