HistoryMore »
The Edmonton Rugby Football Club was formed in 1953, most of their games were played against Calgary teams until 1958 when a group broke away and formed a second team. There now being two rugby clubs in Edmonton, it was decided to give the club a second name to avoid confusion. The name chosen was the Pirates after the famous Cornish team, the Penzance Pirates.
