With preparations for all teams now in full swing before the Rugby League World Cup in November, the Canada Ravens coaching staff and players are fully focused on the road ahead, which includes trial matches and selection trials, then followed by more training and trial matches in Australia in November.

With so much happening for the team ahead of its first Rugby League World Cup, the sponsors of the Ravens who have come on board have contributed immensely to the team’s ability to be best prepared for the World Cup.

Ravens Head Coach, Mike Castle, is now given the opportunity to further prepare the team in Australia, largely due to the support of the team’s sponsors.

“Without the support of our sponsors it would be impossible to bring our squad together prior to the World Cup.”

“Now we will be able to bring everyone to Australia sooner and go into camp at the Runaway Bay Sports Super Centre on the Gold Coast, allowing the team to acclimatise and prepare as best we can for the competition.”

Canada Ravens would like to thank the following sponsors for their generous support of the team in their endeavours for success at the Rugby League World Cup.
