McMaster’s women’s rugby program continues to receive national recognition.

On the heels of the team’s Rugby Canada University Sevens win, six Marauders have been chosen to attend the national organization’s Senior Women’s 15s selection camp. Cindy Nelles, Steph Black, Saffara Whiteley-Hoffelner, Sara Svoboda, Katie Svoboda and Maddy Seatle competed in the Rugby Canada selection camp in Kingston, Ont. from March 31 to April 3.

Head coach Shaun Allen will join his players at the camp. After a successful rookie coaching campaign, where Mac won the OUA championship and a CIS silver medal, Allen has been tapped for an assistant coaching position with the senior women’s national team.

The Svoboda sisters have represented their country before, playing with the junior national team.

Nelles is familiar with the senior international game, playing with Canada at the 2014 Women’s World Cup. Canada finished second at the international competition, falling in the final to England. After the impressive finish, Rugby Canada is looking forward.

“We want to identify more players this year to increase our depth in preparations for the 2017 World Cup,” said Ratier in a press release.

“These camps will allow players to show off their rugby talent, fitness and decision-making skills.”
