Well-travelled C.B.S. native off to Italy for his next rugby trip

Well-travelled C.B.S. rugby star Tony Pomroy will be adding another sticker to his suitcase in July when he competes for Canada in men’s rugby 7s at the 2019 Summer Universiade (FISU) — the World University Games — in Naples, Italy.

Slated for July 3-14, the Games are somewhat similar to the Olympic Games in terms of organization and how they’re staged.

Pomroy, 24, has been making quite a mark on the rugby pitch. In 2016, he travelled to Chile and Argentina with the national team development squad, a year after winning a silver medal at the World Trophy Competition in Portugal with the Canadian Under-20 team.

Currently a member of the Atlantic Rock Canadian Rugby Championship team, Pomroy has played provincially on U16 and U18 squads, and with the U19 Atlantic Rock regional team.

He is a member of the Baymen Rugby Football Club.
