Canada–with massive help from Nomad Asia Hogan– Takes Gold at Pan Am Games

Monday, August 5th, 2019

Canada outperformed the rest of the Americas to win Gold at the 2019 Pan Am Games. In a one-sided final, Canada came out with the gold medal after their 24-5 winners victory over the USA.

The Canadian women and men were both Gold Medal winners at the 2015 Pan American Games on home soil in Toronto. Four years on the women successfully defended their Gold Medal, doing so in style. Nomads cheered as Asia Hogan scored a hat trick in the final game versus our southern neighbours.

Canada had a near perfect tournament as they were unbeaten and conceded just two tries in all of their matches.

Nomads at the Top: Women & Men Competing in Top Divisions

Friday, April 19th, 2019

After a successful first season back in the OWL, the Nomads ladies finished last year third in the west. They are returning to play in Ontario’s premier women’s competition with a new coach (imported from New Zealand, of course) and an insatiable hunger for Ws. They plan to run two teams, a high performance squad, as well as a development team.

The men faced a challenging 2018 season, but finished with a series of wins that proved they had what it takes to play with some of the province’s top teams. This year the Nomads men will compete in the Marshall League, the new premier division in Ontario. This will be the first time in many years that the Nomad men have competed at such a high level. In fact, the last time the Nomads won the Carlin Cup (the highest award in Ontario Men’s Rugby at that time) it was 1976! Back then, a try was worth four points, and stores were closed on Sundays.
