RMC started off well taking an early 10-7 lead but the Gaels were just to much for the Paladins as captain Alex Clark (Oakville, Ont.) and Matthew Cameron (Ottawa, Ont.) both recorded two tries.
Queen's would control the play for the rest of the game spreading the ball around getting tries from Graham Whatt (Richmond Hill, Ont.), Dale Lablans (Kingston, Ont.), Dan Pletch (Lucan, Ont.), Alex Nemetz-Sinchein (Vancouver, B.C.), Graeme Diben (Edmonton, Alta.), Kyle Freitag (Alliston, Ont.), Zach Pancer (Unionville, Ont.), Chris Barrett (Vancouver, B.C.), Michael Salisbury (Toronto, Ont.), Thomas Binczyk (Victoria, B.C.) and Scott Kyle (Singapore).
With the victory Queen's finishes in first place with a record of 5-0-1 and will have home field advantage in the playoffs next weekend as they will take on the University of Toronto. Queen's met Toronto in the first week of the regular season were they defeated the Varsity Blues 86-3.

BROCK 81, TRENT 0
PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - The Brock Badgers men's rugby team rounded out the 2008 regular season schedule with a convincing 81-0 victory over the Trent Excalibur Saturday afternoon on the road.
The Badgers opened the game in their usual fashion, penetrating the Excalibur defence early and often, opening up a substantial lead in the first minutes of the match. While Brock carried the ball, creative patterns and sharp passing opened gaps for scoring opportunities; yet, the occasional mishandling of the ball allowed Trent some chances as well, from kicks.
The Badgers had a balanced offence led by Jon Cregg (Oshawa, Ont.) with 3 tries, and Rory McDonell (Brantford, Ont.) who recorded one try and six converts for 17 points. McDonell finished the regular season as the OUA leading scorer with a career high 87 points including three tries, 24 converts and eight penalty goals.
Mike Berry (Trenton, Ont.) and Adrian Lui (Oakville, Ont.) contributed with two tries each. J.T. Rowbotham (Lindsay, Ont.), Matt McIlvany (Stoney Creek, Ont.), Richard Huff (Barrie, Ont.), Tom Clancy (Lindsay, Ont.) and Craig Talbot (Port McNicoll, Ont.) all chipped in with one try each, while Levon Kvas-Rothwell (St Catharines, Ont.) and Hugh McDonell (Brantford, Ont.) each had a conversion.

The Western victory was secured when Trainor intercepted the Guelph's pass and scored an easy try late in the game, one of three on the day.
Western ends the season with 4-2-1 record, while the Guelph ended their season with 4-2-1 record.
