Aaron Flagg Selected to Canada

FlaggAbbotsford Rugby Club product Aaron Flagg has been selected to the Canadian senior men's team who square off against Japan on Wednesday, June 19. The 6'4, 250lb lock/prop Chilliwack product made the move to Victoria in the early spring to train with the national group. Luckily for Abbotsford, he made the rare choice to stay loyal to his local club, making the weekend trips to train Thursday and play on Saturdays until the conclusion of season in May. His hard work has paid off, earning him his first potential cap in Japan as an impact sub.
