Team BC went undefeated in all six of their Tournament matches to claim the inaugural Rugby 7s gold medal at the Canada Summer Games, following a fantastic performance in Niagara.
The Games, held every two years and hosted in Ontario for the 2022 event, was the first time this young team played together – and they delivered. With 232 points scored in their six games and only 17 points conceded, the 10-strong BC Team defeated teams from PEI, Quebec, Newfoundland and Manitoba in the two-day pool play, and went on to win their Semi-Final against Ontario and Final against Quebec to secure the the gold, while showcasing their skills and passion for the game all week long.
