North Park Collegiate’s senior boys rugby team may not have had a successful season in terms of wins and losses but they were able to achieve one thing – improvement.

Playing St. John’s College on Tuesday at Kiwanis Field, the Trojans (0-4) concluded their season with a 45-5 loss to the Green Eagles. Only the top-four teams in the league move on to the playoffs and NPC finished fifth.
