Rugby 15s U18 Women

Canada’s women’s U18 head coach Dan Valley has named a starting roster for tomorrow’s CAN-AM Series opener against USA in Ottawa.

"We've had a really great start to our campaign - our first 72 hours focused on establishing our connection and culture, and picking up where we left off from our Top-40 camp in March.  

"We've set the expectation around the point of contact and have been able to build out from that platform.  We have 3 sessions to go before we compete, and the athletes are feeling confident about where we're at to this point.  

"The side we've selected will allow us to maintain a level of physicality, skill, and pace for the duration of the match."

Kick off is 6pm ET/3pm PT and will be streamed live on Rugby Canada’s Facebook page>
