Three Hawks named OUA MRUG All-Stars

HAMILTON (November 7, 2014) - Three members of the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks men’s rugby team were named OUA All-Stars on Friday as the conference announced its major award winners.

Andrew Thomson of Pickering, Ont., Andrew Quattrin of Holland Landing, Ont., and Jeffrey Wood of Stratford, Ont., were all honoured after helping the purple and gold to a sixth place finish in the OUA, qualifying them for the playoffs for the first time since 2009.

Despite playing in just six of the Hawks eight games this season, Thomson was an offensive force for Laurier as the team posted a 3-5 record in 2014. The third year 8-man finished tied for third in league scoring with nine tries to earn all-star recognition for the second consecutive season. 

For both Quattrin and Wood, they earn all-star honours after outstanding rookie campaigns. Quattrin, a rookie hooker, and Wood, a first year prop, each played in all eight of Laurier’s games this season with Wood breaking through on the scoresheet with one try in 2014.

This marks the second consecutive year that three Golden Hawks have earned all-star status.
