The Rugby World Cup Sevens took place in San Francisco last weekend, and Port Alberni was represented on Team Canada by local athlete Luke Bradley.

Bradley, who plays with the Port Alberni Black Sheep, was called up to the team on July 19, replacing Victoria’s Mike Fuailefau due to injury.

Bradley made his debut with Team Canada in 2016 at the Hong Kong Sevens. He played for the team again in the Canada Sevens in Vancouver earlier this year.
