19th Century Rugby in Brockville

With files from Brockville Privateers RFC

"Rugby has been played in Brockville area as far back as 1899. The original Brockville Rugby Football Club eventually became part of Brockville Collegiate Institute (BCI). As rugby evolved into football in North America, the BCI/BCRC program became a high school football program that is still in existence today." - Brockville Privateers RFC's 'History' webpage
