Schedule for Americas Pacific Challenge Announced: First Canada Match October 7th vs Argentina XV


It's that time of year again, Canada take part in the Americas Pacific Challenge. From the BC Premier league perspective it means clubs will see their national players for one more weekend after today before they are gone. Players likely will be on display for the new coach Francois Ratier on September 23rd in club play before they leave close to September 30th for their first match on October 7th. Ratier arrives tomorrow so won't see players in action this weekend, it's likely most of the team are penciled in already.

Last year Canada were the only team not to win a match so the bar isn't set high for improving on that performance. In 2016 Canada lost to Argentina, USA and Samoa, this year they play Argentina, Tonga, USA.

The rosters for the Argentina, USA and Samoa matches last year are posted below. It will be interesting to see the selections for this year.
