U18 Boys High School All-Americans named for match with Canada in Victoria

Kickoff at Brentwood College, 8 PM ET, LIVE on Rugby Canada’s Facebook


VICTORIA, B.C. – After two development games, USA Rugby’s U18 Boys High School All-Americans will face Canada’s U18s in a full international tomorrow, KO 8 PM ET, streamed LIVE on facebook.com/RugbyCanada.

As the final phase of the North American Summer Series, the match comes after the All-Americans claimed 24-7 and 27-7 victories over their rivals in two trial matches. The full touring squad saw playing time through one or both of the two exhibition games.

Director & Head Coach Brendan Keane said: “We have had two decent performances in the two trial matches although we were flattered somewhat by the bounce of the ball.  All players on tour have taken part in one or both of those games and are healthy heading into the final international. Having now been assembled for 13 days, these players have done a great job in preparing and executing on the field as well as off it. 

“As ever, the Canadians have been gracious hosts and the experience of eating meals side by side and sharing a training field before and after competition has created a unique and beneficial respect and camaraderie amongst the respective players and staff.  The final match should be highly competitive tomorrow.”

Score updates for the U18 All-Americans vs Canada U18s will be communicated across USA Rugby’s Twitter channels with a live stream available on facebook.com/RugbyCanada.
