Doug Fraser on the fly for B.C.
The B.C. Bears (Men), travel to Calgary to play the Atlantic Rock tomorrow. B.C. has added CW’s Dustin Dobravsky and Riley Di Nardo to the team that had a comprehensive opening victory over the Wolf Pack. ‘The Magician’ Ngongo will be missing on U20 Rep duties. DD and Riley will be joining Fraser and Polson and we wish B.C. the best of luck as they pursue something that might be special for them this season.
Big news of course is the Canada NSWT playing game #2 at the RWC Vs Wales. CW’s Julia Zussman comes into the side at full back, as the single change to the opening line-up. Zuss will be earning her 40th Cap and she will join her Skipper, Kelly who wins Cap #50 tomorrow. Wales are ranked #10 and should provide a much sterner challenge to the Canadian ladies. These teams met in a previous RWC, in 1994 when the Welsh won 11 – 5. The cheers will be loud and proud at The Temple for the ladies in red, particularly, Paquers, Zuss, Olivier and Britt from the pines. We remind you that this is the last chance call out if you wish to join the throng for breakfast. You need to purchase your ticket before-hand, admission by ticket only, available HERE. Go, Canada.
