Chat with Jeff Williams U20 Coach - JWRT in Spain Cancelled This Year
We had a chance to record a candid conversation between two top Canadian coaches this week at Shawnigan Lake. We were there shooting some skills videos with Gilbert Canada and Canada 7s star Kayla Moleschi which will be shared at a later date.
Robin MacDowell runs the MacDowell Rugby Academy and also assists John Tait in identifying upcoming talent for the women's XVs and 7s programs. He also is the Canada Sales lead for Gilbert Canada. Jeff Williams is Canada's men's U20 head coach and Head of Physical Education at Shawnigan Lake School.
We're also trying to get an online copy of the recent Canada v Portugal match, played in Portugal. It was the first win in a while over the Portugal U20 team and one of the reasons for Jeff's optimism moving forward.
The JWRT was to be held in Spain this year in September but we learned from Jeff that this event is now not going ahead.
Here is the video, it's 6 minutes long. If you want to support the U20 team there's a fund set up with the Canadian Rugby Foundation and donations are tax deductible.
