Yale Secondary products Travis Murray, Spencer Loughlin and Spencer Miller have cracked the roster of B.C.’s U19 men’s provincial team, which is pursuing a rare three-peat at the national level. They will be taking on the 2013 runner-ups Prairie Wolf Pack, hosts Atlantic Rock, Ontario Junior Blues, and Eastern Ontario and Quebec Voyageurs.

Loughlin and Miller played for the UBC Thunderbirds this past season, while Murray suited up for the Abbotsford Rugby Football Club.
