Mahovic to suit up for Team BC

Blake Mahovic of the Axemen Rugby Club is set to get an opportunity to shine under bright lights on Friday night.

Mahovic will suit up with the BC All-Stars as it takes on the Canadian Men's XV as part of an exhibition series to help prepare the national team for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Tokyo this fall.

Head coach Aaron Takel said in a release that the players on the B.C. squad have plenty to play for.

"Some players have a point to prove, some of them feel that they deserve to be knocking on the door for selection with the national team programs. This is their chance to take on the person currently occupying that position in the Canada camp," he said.

The game will take place in Langford on Aug. 30. The Canadian team will come to the Lower Mainland a week later to play the United States at B.C. Place on Sept. 7.

Mahovic previously played with Team BC in a win against Alberta earlier this summer.
