They may have finished in sixth, and last, position, but the women’s U18 squad from Team Quebec came out of the Canadian Rugby Championship (CRC) this summer in Calgary with a bag full of experience.

Team Quebec was, by far, the lightest team on the field. “In all my years of coaching, this was my lightest team ever,” said head coach Stephen Kaplan.
