Former BC Player and national team standout, Jamie Cudmore, has announced his retirement after his final game with Oyonnax club. This Squamish native is making plans to move into full-time coaching.
Cudmore has had a tremendous career, with 43 test caps for Canada, playing at 4 Rugby World Cups and winning the Top 14 Championship with his team ASM Clermont Auvergne.
He was introduced to Rugby through the Squamish Axemen rugby club and later moved to North Vancouver to play at Capilano RFC.
In addition to his incredible Rugby talent, he has been a proud advocate for player welfare, particularly concussion awareness. After suffering from numerous concussions himself, he urges clubs, players and coaches to follow the protocol of “recognize and remove”.
We wish Jamie all the best with his future endeavours and we can’t wait to see what he accomplishes in the future.
