Commonwealth Stadium - Edmonton Alberta Canada
Located in Edmonton, the capital city of Alberta, Commonwealth Stadium is the venue for the Barclays Churchill Cup finals. Familiar with intense competition Commonwealth is the home of the Canadian Football League's Edmonton Eskimos. During the halftime break of an Eskimos football game in 2003, the Canadian Seven's squad put on a display of rugby to impress the crowd. For the Barclays Churchill Cup finals it is anticipated the lower bowl of the stadium will be filled to capacity with 25,000 excited rugby fans.

Built to host the 1978 Commonwealth Games, Commonwealth Stadium is conveniently situated less then one mile from downtown Edmonton, Alberta. Seating over 65,000 people, Commonwealth remains the only major sporting facility in Canada with natural turf, and remains one of the premier playing surfaces in North America.

Lep/Tigers Rugby Club - www.ltrugby.ca
Welcome to the Leprechaun Tigers R.F.C., one of the premiere rugby clubs of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. This site is still under construction so you may find lnks that are not working; check back often as something new gets added each week.

The LTs are named for the 1992 merger of two of the city's proudest and most storied clubs and were bolstered by the 1996 addition of the Coven, a top women's side (see our Club History Page ).

The founding clubs' winning ways have been continued on by a new generation of club members with provincial championships for the women's 1st XV in 2000, both women's 1st and 2nd XV in 2002, and a city championship for the Men's 1st XV in 2003 (see our Results & Standings Page .

Maybe more importantly, the club has continued its founding members' traditions of having fun, playing hard, and enjoying the game. The club continually strives to use rugby to instill a strong sense of family for its members and in the community at large. As a result, numerous events take place throughout the year to encourage the social aspects of the game and because we need very limited excuse to throw a party (see our Events Page ).

The purpose of this site is for visitors and potential players to get a feel for the club and judge whether they might want to get involved. New players are always welcome and the club atmosphere is well-suited to making friends and learning the sport. Please browse the photo gallery, the complete news blog, and the events page to get a sense of what we're about and don't hesitate to contact anyone on the executive if you have any questions. Please note: The Members section is password protected and contains personal information and other LT only material.
