The Canadian men finished 11th for the second HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series tournament in a row Sunday, losing 24-14 to Argentina in the consolation Challenge Trophy semifinals at the Cape Town Sevens.
The tournament saw Justin Douglas of Abbotsford, B.C., become Canada’s all-time leading try-scorer with 126, surpassing Sean Duke’s mark of 124. And Hirayama, from Richmond, B.C., upped his career total to 1,509 points, becoming one of four players to reach the 1,500-point milestone.
The Canadian women landed on the podium for 2nd week in a row. Learning invaluable lessons on the road to the 2020 Olympics, the women had a strong finish after a mid-tournament wobble, defeating France for the Bronze medal.
