“It’s always great to have a quality team coming to Canada to play us,” said head coach Kieran Crowley. “It gives us the opportunity to perform at home in front of our supporters and carry on the momentum that was created by the 2011 World Cup coverage.”

With most of the overseas Canadian players being available to Coach Kieran Crowley along with an expanding number of team members now residing at the brand new state of the art Canadian Rugby Centre of Excellence facility in Langford, BC, the team is looking forward to playing just a short ride away on their home soil in Burnaby. The Georgian National team, should provide an excellent challenge for the Canadian squad, who will be posed to finished their three test match series with a win in Burnaby.

“Georgia is a team on the rise, just below us in the IRB ranking. They really benefit from having the majority of their players playing in the French elite professional competitions,” said Crowley of the Georgian team. “The last time we played them in 2010, they defeated us, so we certainly have a challenge in front of us.”
