Tropical 7s Rosters 

(WHITBY, ON) - The Ontario Jr. Blues Program have announced the rosters for the teams heading to the Tropical 7s Tournament in Orlando. The Jr. Blues will be sending a U16 Girls and Boys team along with a U17 Girls and Boys team. The Tropical 7s Tournament runs from April 19th to April 20th.

The Jr. Blues Program will look to match the success they had in the Sunshine State last year. The Program sent both a U17 Boys and Girls squad down to the tournament, both of whom competed in U18 divisions. The U17 Girls’s team finished in third place in their division, while the U17 Boys’s team took home the silver medal in their age group. 

 “This is an extremely exciting time for RO7s. This is the first time in the program’s nine year history that we will be running a Under 16 Boy/Girls team in a major competition” said Khalil Ajram, Rugby Ontario 7s program lead. “The entire staff is excited to see how all four teams will compete vs some of the best programs in North America.”

“I’m really excited to be bringing this group of upcoming outstanding athletes to this quality of a tournament” said Jeremy Cairnie, the U17 Girls Head Coach.  The girls have really come together and their hard work on and off the field has been really showing.”

Tyler Greer shares the same excitement about the U17 Boys. Greer, the head coach of the team, is eager to see his squad compete on a big stage. “I'm looking forward to taking this team and seeing how they will compete at the Tropical 7s” said Greer. “ We have a great group of guys who play an exciting brand of rugby. I think they have the talent and potential to do very well”
