Thunder Masks

We appreciate Andrew Wilkinson and the Liberal Caucus inviting us to the BC Legislature today (Aug 11th 2020) to talk about our rugby program for Indigenous youth and the mask campaign. More stories, photos and links below. Contact John Lyall at jlyall@thunderrugby.ca to purchase masks and follow us on Facebook for updates.

Thunder Rugby were featured in June 2020 on CHEK News with the protective masks we’ve been selling during the COVID-19 pandemic. The masks feature west coast Indigenous designs and one of the designs is by world-renowned artist Richard Hunt. The article link is below.

With the Thunder Rugby program on hold for now due to COVID-19, everyone is hoping for a quick return to the pitch. But for now, these masks have been a much-needed lifeline for the struggling program.“We tried it out and got really good success with it.We still need to keep our nose above the water so it’s been great for us,” said Lyall.“I think that’s great, hopefully, we sell more and if not, we’ll come up with another idea,” said Hunt.
