Will Percillier Top 14 Try

Former Canada U20 scrum half Will Percillier scored a try for Stade Francais Paris in his first run out with the senior team. He subbed in off the bench and showed strong support work to claim his first Top 14 try. Percillier played his high school rugby at Brentwood and then went on to UBC.

We did an interview with Will back in 2018 during the Canada U20 JWRT in Romania, that interview can be found here.

World Tens Series

The second tournament wraps up today. The Rhinos from California won the first tournament but the London Royals overtook them after Day 1 of this weekend’s tournament. Next weekend will be the knock out playoffs with the top team getting a bye to the semis and the other six teams playing for a semi-final spot.

The SX10 team from South Africa who missed the first 3 days of tournament play due to COVID and came in fresh to Day 4 will be one of the favourites to win the tournament. Even though they started with a 0-8 record, all teams will qualify for the playoffs.
