From Abbotsford Rugby. Congratulations to Jason Hignell who just finished a tour with the Canada U-18 Men’s team in Romania. The team went 1-2 on their tour, which saw Hignell captain the first game. Jason has played this season for both the Abbotsford U-20 team and the Div 1 men’s team, a difficult feat as a recent high school graduate from Yale.

Canada U18s finish their tour to Romania with their heads held high after a tough, 9 to 3 loss to the Romanian U19s. The match was played in not the best conditions and would end up being a defensive struggle. St. George’s fly half, Ben Scher, would score the only points, a penalty in the first half, for Canada.
A forward oriented game always plays to the strength of the Romanians. However the defensive patterns and determination of the Canadian side, in a match that would feature many goal line stands by them, was excellent.
