The Arrows story so far – our Exiles put up a brave fight!
The Arrows 2021 season has so far been a bit of a rollercoaster.

Excuse the silence but some of us have been taking some well earned breaks in the sunshine to get away from the Canadian winter.

Arrows make it six in a row and a playoff spot beckons!
In an emphatic 40-12 win over the Glendale Raptors at Lamport Stadium, the Toronto Arrows secure third spot in the league heading into the final game of the regular season this coming Sunday.

Toronto make it three in a row and build some serious momentum!
In Toronto’s first of four games at Lamport Stadium in the heart of downtown, they laid down a marker that they mean business for the rest of the season.

It was a nail bitingContinue reading “Toronto make it three in a row and build some serious momentum!”
Toronto’s third home game sees them inch closer to that elusive playoff spot!
Elusive it may still be but, after defeating last year’s Champions the Seattle Seawolves 29-7 at York Alumni Field on Sunday, a playoff spot is not completely out of reach for Major League Rugby’s 2019 debutantes the Toronto Arrows.
