Ahead of BC Rugby's U18 Boys' Team player selections, a squad has been put together comprising of some of the top high school Rugby players in the province. This squad, led by Coach Adam Roberts, will face the Independent School RFC Lambs from Birmingham, England on April 9th. After being defeated by the Rugby Canada U19 Men’s team last weekend at Burnaby Lake, the Lambs are looking to redeem themselves in the match against BC’s squad.

The two teams will face each other at Westhills Stadium on Sunday, April 9th in Victoria with a 2pm kickoff. The event is free for spectators.

Coach Adam Roberts shares, “We have cast the net far and wide to recruit as many players as we can for this game. This has been a busy time for high school players, coupled with Canada’s U18 team being away, however we’re expecting to present a strong opposition for the Lambs."

This team will not be the final BC Rugby U18 Boys' Team, nor does it play a role in the selection, that will be heading to Ireland this summer. However, the touring side presented an opportunity to play some high-level rugby. The BC Rugby Age-Grade Selection Policy is available at bcrugby.com and all players wishing to be considered for selection should take note of the upcoming Identification Sessions.
