The 18-year-old Canadian that is about to explode into French Rugby

The 18-year-old Canadian that is about to explode into French Rugby

Ciaran Breen is only 18-years-old but the Canadian is already making big waves on the global rugby scene. He played rugby for his local school Shawnigan Lake School but the Canadian is now set to play for Biarritz Rugby in the Pro D2 division. In this highlight reel this lad looks truly talented with an unbelievable step and a strong offload. We had no idea that this level of rugby was being played at schoolboy level in the Canadian age grade area!

Ciaran Breen has represented his province British Columbia in U14 XV’s and 7s, U16 XV’s and 7s, and U18 in only 7s. He captained the Shawnigan Lake School XV in his final year of high school. He has represented Canada at the XV level in Phoenix, Arizona, and San Diego, California. Just recently he represented Canada in BC playing in a test match against the USA. 7s wise he has also represented Canada at the World School 7s in Auckland, and he hopes to go again this upcoming year. He will be playing for Biarritz Olympique starting August 7th.

The Canadian will surely smash it over there in the cowboy league!
