In the end the Howler's Island team prevailed 67-54. I suspect whichever team had Robin MacDowell playing for them would have won, he was easily the best player on the field. A testament to the fitness of the young 35, former national team player. Justin Douglas' brother Jared Douglas was also impressive and showed some of his brother's speed. I'm surprised he hasn't been looked at for the Maple Leafs at least. Johnny Morris and Doug Fraser stood out for the Tide. In the earlier game the Ravens prevailed over a slow starting Canada U20 team. After giving up an early 17-0 lead the Canada U20 played themselves back into the game and narrowly lost 29-24. The full Canada U20 match report from Rugby Canada is appended below.
The match videos and program are appended below but first I'd like to thank all the people involved. A sentiment shared by Judah.
Hi Mark, thank you guys so much for doing that. It was great to be able to watch the game and what a game it was. A lot of tries going back and forth. The event was awesome and it sounded like everyone was enjoying themselves. I really want to thank everyone involved in making that game happen on my behalf. Could you either forward my email or give me theirs, so I can thank everyone.
