Jason has played this season for both the Abbotsford U-20 team and the Div 1 men's team, a difficult feat as a recent high school graduate from Yale.

Canada U18s finish their tour to Romania with their heads held high after a tough, 9 to 3 loss to the Romanian U19s.  The match was played in not the best conditions and would end up being a defensive struggle.  St. George’s fly half, Ben Scher, would score the only points, a penalty in the first half, for Canada.
