UNB 1925–1929 Rugby Team
A citation filled with statistics, besides making for dull reading, seldom does justice to a superior sport performance. But, in the case of these five consecutive University of New Brunswick Rugby teams, one is compelled to examine the facts: They played 36 games, won 31, tied 2, lost but 3! In 22 of those 36 games they held their opponents scoreless! They scored a total of 481 points, and had but 79 scored against them! They won 11 championship titles in those 5 seasons including 4 MacTier Cups, the highest achievement open to them in Canada! They were the toast of the university at which they studied, the city in which they resided, and the province whose name they carried with them during this dynasty. In amassing this string of Intercollegiate, New Brunswick, Maritime and Eastern Canadian titles they showed ever so clearly that sport excellence and academic achievement can indeed go hand in hand. Enrolled in the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame, June 2, 1979.
