Seattle Seawolves Sign Mozac Samson - A Look at Career Highlights: Wolfpack, CW, Canada
Mozac first shows up in our database in 2010, scoring for the Wolfpack against the BC Bears. Wolfpack won that one 41-6... ouch. That Wolfpack team had Mozac on the wing, Blevins in the centres, Nanyak Dala in the loosies, Luke Cudmore second row and Buydens in the front row.
Next time we see him he's wearing CW colours in 2012 and playing centre, Ander Monro was the CW #10 at the time. Mozac won the BCRN MVP hoodie in March of 2012.
He was good enough to make Canada in 2012 but it was a closed shop then and it wasn't until Francois Ratier came in as interim coach in 2016 that Mozac got a cap. That was February 2016 against Uruguay in Langford. Canada won that match 33-17 (yes remember the good old days when we beat Uruguay using club guys with a Canadian coach). Mozac went on to claim 4 caps that year. He had a 50% win record while playing for Canada, defeating Uruguay and Russia, losing to USA and Japan.
Anscombe came in as coach in 2016 and Mozac got some starts with Canada A but didn't get the call up to the World Cup.
At 32 he's now embarking on a pro career in Seattle, again playing for a Canadian coaching staff. We wish him all the best along with the Seattle Seawolves in their inaugural season. Seattle Seawolves media
SEATTLE- The Seattle Seawolves have announced the signing of Prairie Wolf Pack center and 2015 CRC champion, Mozac Samson.
"Mozac’s speed and agility is a strong addition to our back line. We are happy to have him join the Seawolves family.” said coach Tony Healy.
Mozac Samson was born in Fiji and began playing rugby at an early age. After moving to Calgary, Alberta in 2005 to continue his education, he began playing for the Calgary Saints Rugby Football Club and Prairie Wolf Pack in 2009. He was part of the Canadian Sevens training squad from 2011 until 2015 before he was called up in 2016 to the Canadian 15s squad to play in the Americas Rugby Championship. In 2015, he won the Canadian Rugby Championship with the Prairie Wolf Pack while earning the title of top try scorer for the tournament.
“I am humbled and honored by the opportunity to play for the Seattle Seawolves; a team with an already impressive group of players and exceptional coaching staff,” says Samson “it's amazing to play in the inaugural season of MLR and I am looking forward to seeing the league grow and expand - this league will provide so many opportunities to develop North American players into a force on the world stage.”
