Duncan’s Pat Kay gets called up by Canada

Duncan’s Pat Kay was summoned by Rugby Canada to play for the men’s national team in Dubai last weekend and South Africa next weekend.

An injury to Harry Jones opened the door for Kay, a graduate of Cowichan Secondary School now playing for the UVic Vikes.

"Harry is the second top point scorer in the series at the moment, so he’s a critical part of the team," coach Liam Middleton told rugbycanada.ca prior to the

Dubai Sevens. "This is a great opportunity for Pat to integrate himself in the Sevens World Series."

Canada finished eighth at the Dubai Sevens, beating Kenya 19-12 in the Shield Final. They opened the tournament on Friday with a 19-14 win over Wales, then went on to lose 24-12 to South Africa and 26-7 to Portugal.

In the first round of the playoffs on Saturday, Canada lost to France 42-19, but bounced back to defeat Japan 29-14 in the Shield Semifinal.
