Rouge et Or Gear Up For 2012 Season

Rouge et Or Gear Up For 2012 Season

Laval University’s footbal team, the all-conquering Rouge et Or, are getting ready for the new season.

Following a number of enforced departures, there were nine positions that needed filling in the new formation.

The new team, a young but talented one, will attempt to regain the Vanier Cup when they hope to contest the final in November in Toronto.

Even though the Rouge et Or had to recruit younger players after last year’s season, the team seem to have raised the bar higher in order to increase performance for the coming season.

Defensively, the team lost two good players.

The Rouge et Or have brought in eight rookies, and they will need time to gel.

This coming season looks to be a transitional one.

Will the Rouge et Or be able to compete this autumn when coming up against seasoned opposition in the LFUQ (Ligue de Football Universitaire du Québec)?

The Rouge et Or have a pre-season game against the McMaster Marauders, the current Vanier Cup champions, this weekend.

Go Rouge et Or!!
