Special Guest – Update!
Two special guests have been confirmed for the lunch event. Firstly we are honored to welcome Ian Burney, Ambassador of Canada to Japan who will be in Fukuoka to watch the match and also make an appearance at the Canadian booth at Fanzone in front of JR Hakata Station.
Then, as previously announced, someone of great importance to both Canadian and Japanese rugby, Ms. Lesley McKenzie! Hailing from Fort Nelson, British Columbia, Lesley McKenzie is a former Canadian international player with 25 caps. She has played in two Women’s Rugby World Cups: in 2006 and 2010. In January 2019, she was appointed head coach of the Japanese women’s rugby 15s team, the Sakura 15s. She now has her sights set on Women’s Rugby World Cup 2021 and had been developing the next generation of female coaches in Japan.
