A young member of the Assassins RFC, Beau Sager has traveled to New Zealand to play the sport that he has played for the last four years in high school and a partial Senior Men’s season. Beau was planning to travel once he graduated from Glenlawn Collegiate in 2017. He decided upon New Zealand due to a contact who had worked with his father and provided an opportunity for him to continue to play rugby in New Zealand.
Beau is in the province of Canterbury and is playing for a side called the Darfield RFC Colts. When last speaking to his club from Winnipeg Beau said, things were going well, he was frustrated with his reception with where he was staying and he excitedly explained there was a chance he would get to start for his new team.
Beau is a scrumhalf with the knack for going for runs around the sides of rucks. He began playing rugby in grade 9 at Glenlawn Collegiate. By grade 10 he had stolen the starting spot from a veteran grade 12 scrumhalf.
As a Glenlawn rugby player he was a Provincial finalist in 2015 and 2016. He was the starting scrumhalf and a key contributor to the team that defeated St. Paul’ s in the 15’s city finals in 2016. Beau took further opportunities to get better at the game and was part of the U18 Manitoba side for prairie based competitions in Saskatchewan in 2016 and 2017.
The Assassins wish Beau the best of luck in NZ and hopes he soaks up all the rugby culture he can in the leading rugby nation. The club is excited to have a young player back in the future with fine tuned skills and a better understanding of the game.
