Canadian football news in 1911

Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta Unions formed the Western Canada Rugby Football Union on October 21. The Regina Rugby Club changed its colours to blue and white. Winnipeg realtor Hugo Ross donated the championship trophy bearing his name; he subsequently drowned in the sinking of the S.S. Titanic in April 1912.

The Calgary Tigers won the Western Championship, contested by the Alberta and Manitoba Unions, and challenged for the Grey Cup, but the CRU would not accept the challenge because the WCRFU was not a full member of the CRU. [2]
