Sept 22,2014(ISN) – The U17 East  selection camp was held at Guelph University this past weekend with 39 players attending, travelling in from Newfoundland, PEI ,New Brunswick , Quebec, Eastern Ontario, and central  Ontario and Manitoba.

Players were nominated by their Provincial Coaches and had an outstanding performance at the Rugby Canada National Championships this past August in Calgary. 

The Head Coach Andy Plimer and guest coaches worked with the players in small groups and focused on key development areas .

“This is the first entry point into Rugby Canada’s men’s high performance program and it gave us and the players a great opportunity to assess their current position.” said Plimer. 

“The athletes and coaches were also very fortunate to have Kieran Crowley at the camp and this had huge developmental benefits,” concluded Plimer.  

The weekend finished with an intersquad game.

The next stage for some of these athletes will be a West v East camp in the Spring in British Colombia
