2014 is the first year the 6 Toronto clubs (Nomads, Balmy Beach, Buccaneers, Dragons, Saracens and Scottish) have conducted play-offs and finals for the u16 and u18 City divisions.

To make the u16 fianl even more memorable Nomads RFC have donated a  trophy named in honour of club stalwart and long time Nomads  junior coach, Joe Kopu. Joe has coached hundreds of Nomads juniors over the years and the trophy is in recognition of his time and effort and the huge contribution he has made to players’ development, the Nomads club and Toronto rugby.
