BC U18 Teams Announced for Thursday's National 7s Championship

Last year the BC men's team came 4th, the women won the tournament. Last year's matches are online for viewing at:

The BC men's team this year came 7th at Vegas, the women came 2nd. Both teams were without their (3) national players who were successfully representing Canada at the Youth Olympics Qualifier.

Last year the men lost to both Ontario teams plus Alberta in placing 4th. It wasn't a good year for the BC men's 7s program.

Ontario men had 8 players on the national squad this year and Alberta 1 player. Ontario will go in as favourites, BC will be expected to make the final this year in the men's division - that match will be played at BC Place on Saturday. Looking at the Ontario rosters, 5 of their national team players aren't listed, they're only playing 3, so that makes the BC v Ontario matchup look a lot more even. Three of their players are returning from last year's championship team as well.

The women look strong again this year with their 2nd place finish at Vegas despite missing 3 national team players. Expect to see them in the final again this year with a good chance of winning it all for the third time.

The coaching team for BC men is Tony La Carte and Nanyak Dala, for BC women it's Darcy Patterson and Mandy Marchak

This Thursday, the BC Rugby Elite Youth Sevens Teams will compete in the third annual Canadian Rugby National U18 Sevens Championships, held at Burnaby Lake, BC. The Championship will take place over three days, with round-robin pools taking place on the first day and knock out matches on Friday. The teams that qualify for the finals on Saturday will take centre stage at BC Place in front of a crowd of thousands, as part of the HSBC Canada Sevens Vancouver Tournament.

The U18 Girls' Team, sponsored by Onni, have won the tournament for the last two years in a row and are determined to defend their title again. The U18 Boys' Team have tasted glory too, winning the tournament in its inaugural year. Last year's fourth-place finish was a disappointment to the players and this year's squad go into the games on Thursday with a point to prove.
