The 2012 Abbotsford Kukri 7's Tournament was this past weekend, July 28, at Abbotsford's Exhibition Park. 25 teams were in attendance on Saturday to compete for prizes in three divisions, including the Elite Men's, Elite Women's and Men's Social divisions.

Burnaby Lake won the Elite Men's division, beating Abbotsford 35-19 in the final and earning a set of new Kukri jerseys. The Emerald City Mudhens from the Seattle area defeated Burnaby 24-10 in the Elite Women's division to also secure a set of Kukri jerseys. The Young Bucks beat United 22-7 in the Social division to win the $500 cash prize.

Thank you to all the teams who attended the tournament and played some great rugby. There was not shortage of entertaining and competitive games, particularly at the social level. Thank you also to all the referees and volunteers who helped make the event happen. Thank you as well to supporters who were out keeping the beverage garden lively and entertaining. Thanks especially to Kukri for sponsoring the tournament and supporting the Abbotsford Rugby Club. We look forward to seeing everyone back next year for the 2013 tournament on July 27.
