Mexico Women’s 7s to visit CRFC

We’re very excited to announce that the Mexican Women’s 7s team will be visiting CRFC Wednesday, July 11!  

As you may know, the Mexican Women’s 7s team is coached by our very own Piggie alumni Robin MacDowell.  Robin is bringing the team to Vancouver Island to acclimatize prior to the Rugby 7s World Cup in San Francisco, July 20-22. 

For MacDowell, no visit to the Island would be complete without a pilgrimage to Piggie Park.

“The Mexican Women’s Rugby 7s World Cup Team is thrilled to be welcomed by the Cowichan Rugby Club in their final week of preparation for their first appearance at the Rugby World Cup Sevens.  For me it is going to a special opportunity for my athletes to enjoy Cowichan Rugby’s incredible hospitality and it is full circle to bring my team home to the Valley where my rugby journey all began. Rugby has taking me all over the world and it’s all thanks to my roots on Herd Road.” ~ Robin MacDowell
