Algonquin defeated St. Lawrence 29-12 last Saturday at Twin Elm Rugby Park in Richmond to win the OCAA bronze medal. Taylor played major role in the outcome, finishing with a pair of tries which matched his total output during the 2018 regular season. Taylor was also named Man of the Match and an OCAA East Division All-Star. Algonquin, which last reached the OCAA podium back in 2015, capped off an outstanding turnaround season following a 2-4 regular season record in 2017. The Thunder lost just two matches in 2018, including post-season.
