In their goal of evolving this into a "local derby" the Howlers have stepped aside for what they hope will become the first "annual" Wolverines (North Saskatchewan) vs Prairie Fire rugby 7's game. This is also their vision for all the CFL stadiums . With the support of Jim Hopson (a honorary Howler - see picture of him with his Howlers jersey on the Howlers Facebook page pictures section) the highly regarded "dean" of Canadian Football League CEO's, the Howlers are hoping to accomplish this. The introductory year like in Regina would be a half time game between the Howlers and a local side which would be hopefully then would be followed up by an annual "grudge match" between local rivals . We are currently negotiating with 2 other CFL teams to alos hold a rugby 7's game in their stadiums this year.
