Action Rugby is excited to announce a 15s tour to the Portugal 2020 Youth Festival, with competition days on April 4th and 5th. Action Rugby will compete in the u17 and u19 Boys division.

The Portugal 2020 Rugby Youth Festival is the best European rugby tournament for youth teams (clubs, schools and academies).

This is your opportunity to experience international competition. Open to any player currently registered with Rugby Canada. Teams will be selected, based on a First-Come-First-Served basis, and position availability. Action Rugby reserve the right to player selection.
