9th May, 2017
Congratulations to Bond University Rugby’s very own Lachlan Currie, who has been selected to represent Canada U20s in 2017. Lachie will be off to Canada on the 11th of May to represent his family’s Canadian heritage.
Lachie’s Canadian heritage is from his father’s sides, with his grandfather and great grandfather both representing Canada as Boxing Heavy Weight Champions.
Lachy’s dad Jim Currie said, “It is also a great honour for Lachy as he was named after his grandfather Lachlan Currie”
Lachie came to the club in 2015 playing Lock and Blindside Flanker for the Premier Colts and played every game in the 2015 season as well as the 2016 season. Lachie was also named the 2016 Colts Club Captain which provided Currie with confidence and maturity which transferred across to his football.
“Bond Rugby have assisted me in making the Canadian team, through working with talented coaches such as Sean Hedger, Brad Harris and Ray Smith”
Bond University Rugby has helped reinforce the attitudes and discipline Currie has towards his Rugby.
While playing for the Bond University Premier Colts, Currie went on to play in the 2016 Premier Colts Grand Final. His performance during the 2016 season and grand final resulted in his selection in the South Qld U19 Representative team.
Curries performance in 2016 meant he was also noticed by Western Force U20s coaching staff, who he then joined in 2017.
His outstanding performance and determination caught the eye of Canadian selectors.
Canada will play two games against The United States to qualify for the World Junior Trophy held in Uruguay. If the Canadian team make it to the World Junior Trophy competition they will come up against Uruguay, Chile, Japan, Hong Kong, Portugal, Namibia and Fiji.
We wish Lachy all the best in his latest rugby pursuit and look forward to seeing back on the Gold Coast again soon.
