The Bears will scrum down against their Eastern rivals on the turf at Westhills Stadium, the same venue that will host the 2013 Americas Rugby Championship in October.

While the Bears (0-1) will be looking to register their first win after coming up short against the Prairie Wolf Pack (0-1) on August 10th, the matches will also be used as a proving ground for players looking to crack the Canada-A national team development roster.

The Bears will be hosting the Ontario Blues on Friday, August 30th at 7:30pm. Monday's match against the Atlantic Rock will kick off at 4:45pm.

Tickets can be purchased at the gate and are priced at $15 for adults, $10 for youth. A two-pack double-header (per person), good for both the Friday and Monday fixtures can be purchased for $25 for adults and $15 for youth.
