Outstanding Result From Superhuman Effort!

Outstanding Result From Superhuman Effort!

Posted in Canada Rugby / NSMT / Sevens

This site will not pontificate at any length about today's two matches.  The UTube highlights tell the tale. Suffice to say, the effort was unreal and in the battle for third, when Canada looked gassed in the first half and had the very worst start imaginable, giving up a tally after the k.o...

MONUMENTAL Vs France! Off To The Semis.

Posted in News / NSMT / Sevens

This reporter missed the opening French score but at the midpoint of Stanza #1, Canada was harshly done by when a Phil Mack touchdown ( potentially tying score), was disallowed and deemed "subjectively" (and incorrectly), forward.  Canada, verbally disagreed - penalty - lineout - French tally, 14...

South Africa - Too Much

Posted in Canada Rugby / NSMT / Sevens

Game #2 saw some good opposition from Canada but insufficient talent to dent a team which looks destined for the Final at this Tourney.  The score was kept to 0 - 12 at the half and two more tallies looked like that was all.  Unfortunately, again, in the last minute, with Canada seeking to score,...
