Canada’s U18 boys prepped for USA match

Rugby 15s U18 Men

MILL BAY, BC (July 11, 2019) - After two exhibition matches, Canada’s Under-18 team will finish off their Can-Am camp this Sunday with a test match against USA at Brentwood College.

The two exhibitions proved a tough test for the Canadian side, falling 24-7 on July 7th and 27-7 on July 10th.  The games served as an opportunity for talent ID and development with both teams having the opportunity to roll through their full line ups before the full international this Sunday.

“This series has been a great opportunity for development and has challenged young players in a highly competitive tournament," said assistant coach and recently retired Canadian international, Ray Barkwill. "Really important especially as we look to keep building our pathway into the U20 and senior teams.” 

“We saw a lot of talent out of these rising stars. Now it’s just about turning that hard work at practice into results on the field this Sunday.” added Barkwill. 

The final match will take place at Brentwood College in Mill Bay, BC and is free to the public. It will also be streamed LIVE on Rugby Canada’s Facebook page. Kickoff is at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT.
