Coach - U13 Boys.
(John, ball in hand, on the rampage in University days!)
John grew up in Victoria and was a member of the CW Junior program from U16 through to a Provincial Championship-winning U19 squad. He earned honours with the Canadian U17 and U20 teams before travelling to Australia, where he spent a season with the Melbourne Rebels Rising program playing against other Australian Super Rugby development teams. Upon his return to Canada he was named Captain of the Western Mustangs Rugby Team. In the years since he graduated with his degree in Kinesiology, he has coached and refereed rugby at the high school level and was head coach of the London St. George's Rugby Club Senior Men’s team, which competes in the Ontario Marshall Premiership. His recent return to Victoria has been a long time coming, and re-uniting with CW after such a long hiatus is exciting. It is great to have people come "full circle" with the club and we welcome John back, knowing full well he will go about his task with the same gusto we observed as a player many years ago.
