Todd Silverthorn, Canada Men’s U20 manager and Rugby Canada Centre of Excellence operations manager, is seeking billets for U20 players as the program enters its final stages of preparation for the 2014 Junior World Rugby Trophy in Hong Kong April 2nd to 20th.
The team has already relocated to BC with many of its members renting apartments in Victoria and Vancouver while playing club rugby for local teams and training twice a week as a team at the Canadian Rugby Centre of Excellence.
Depending on final selections, 12 – 15 lads will need billets for three weeks: March 1 – 13 and March 24 – April 2. The team has scheduled a 10-day tour to England mid-March and plans to base itself in Leeds – the former home of its coach, Mike Shelley.
The U20 program and Rugby Canada appreciates Ebb Tide’s past support and looks forward to continuing the excellent experience that its players had billeting with us last year. Those of us that hosted players last year thoroughly enjoyed the experience, too!
If you can billet a player or two, please contact Todd directly via email (preferred) or phone:
(Office) 250-418-8998 ext. 308
Cheers - Shane Muldrew, Past President
