BC roster announced for NWL round two versus Prairies

OTTAWA, Ont. - The BC senior women’s provincial team (0-1) will face the Prairies (1-1) in round two of the National Women’s League Finals on Thursday afternoon at Twin Elm Park in Ottawa. BC head coach Dean Murten has announced his roster as the program looks to rally from a 20-10 defeat to national champions Quebec (2-0) on Tuesday.

“We have done a good review of what went wrong and realize that the second half showed we have to remain disciplined,” said Murten. “The players have all remained positive and accepted responsibility.”

Chelsey Minter (Velox Valkyries) comes off the bench to replace Iona Schamberger at tighthead and Alicia Noger (Burnaby Lake RC) replaces Cherissde Du Preez (Velox Valkyries) in the second row.

Murten has a new half back combination with Lynzi Anderson (Velox Valkyries) shifting from scrum half to blindside wing and Sam Kreeger (Velox Valkyries) moving to the bench. The moves make way for Christina Burnham (SFU) to slot in at scrum half and for Kara Galbraith (Velox Valkyries) to move off the wing into fly half. Selinna McGinnis (Velox Valkyries) comes off the bench to start on the wing in Galbraith’s place.

“They’ve regrouped really well. We now know that they can play at the highest level,” added Murten. “The players have demanded a better performance of themselves and our leadership team has really stepped up.”

The BC squad will be up against a Prairies team with a hefty forward pack and a pair of bruising centres. The Prairies defeated Atlantic 41-22 on Tuesday and then dropped a 27-11 decision to Quebec on Wednesday.

“We will stick to what works for us,” Murten said heading into Thursday’s clash. “My biggest thing in the last 24 hours has been working on our defence. We’ve been working on getting off the line and shutting them down. We are expecting a physical challenge.”

BC drops NWL opener against defending national champions Quebec

OTTAWA, Ont. - British Columbia's senior women's provincial team dropped their 2014 NWL opener to defending champions Quebec by a score of 20-10 on Tuesday afternoon at Ottawa's Twin Elm Rugby Park.

Quebec scored first but only led 12-10 at the half with BC points coming through Ciara Malone (Burnaby Lake RC) and Kara Galbraith (Velox Valkyries) tries. BC were kept off the scoreboard in the second half, however, as Quebec produced a converted try and slotted a penalty for the 20-10 win.

BC will look to regroup during tomorrow's recovery day as they prepare for Thursday's clash against the Prairies at 4pm EST.


BC Senior Women’s roster announced for NWL opener against Quebec

NOTE: All games are being live streamed on www.nwlrugby.com

Murten’s side will be captained by loose head prop Carolyn McEwen.

“From what I saw of Quebec last year and what I know about their team, I am expecting a very fit, skillful, physical team that will be well organized,” said Murten. “They will play with lots of passion and energy.”

Quebec downed BC 43-25 in their 2013 matchup, before going on to win the national title.

“They are a great team and have done a lot of hard work to get where they are,” Murten added.
