Dauphin's Tomchuk takes part in Rugby Canada tryouts

Dauphin's Brayden Tomchuk was in Regina this past weekend as he took part in the U18 Rugby Canada Team West tryouts.

"The tryouts were really fun, and it was a great learning experience," said Tomchuk. "It was intense, I'm really sore from the whole camp, but I loved it."

This past weekend's camp attracted some of the best under 18 rugby players in Western Canada.

"It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, but it's only the first camp and there are a few left," said Tomchuk. "I think my odds of making the team are alright, but I don't know for sure yet."

Tomchuk took a lot out of taking part in the camp.

"I learned that I wasn't a good tackler, and at the camp, I learned how to become a lot better at it," said Tomchuk. "I also learned how I can make myself better off the field as well."

Now Tomchuk will return to the DRCSS to play for the Clippers Rugby 7's team, while he waits for a call to see if he advances to the next stage of tryouts which will take place from November 3-6 in Vancouver.
