The Nova Scotia Keltics have been stuck in a rut in recent years, and are going young to try and get out of it.
The Keltics, who host the Quebec Caribou tomorrow at 3 p.m. at Wanderers Grounds, haven’t won more than one game in a Rugby Canada Super League season since 2003. That trend might continue this summer as they look to the future.
“We’re setting our goal three years from now to be national champions and we’ve picked a lot of youth for that reason,” Keltics head coach Troy Myers said. “We’re in a rebuilding phase and we really just hope to be competitive.”
The Keltics are already 0-1 after a 49-5 road loss to the Niagara Thunder last weekend. They’re looking to get back to the success they had in 1998 and 2000, when they advance to the league final in their first and third seasons in the RCSL.
