Levale off to Dubai

Abbotsford rugby star named to Maple Leaf development team

There’s one more stop on the Nakisa Levale rugby world tour for 2015.

The 2015 Abbotsford Secondary grad heads to Dubai as a member of the Maple Leafs development team roster for the Dubai International Invitational on Dec. 3 and 4.

The Maple Leafs team will travel with a Canadian team made up of professional players who are competing in the HSBC Women’s Sevens Series held on the same days.

In January, Levale was a member of the Team BC U18 girls team that travelled to Las Vegas, and for the past several months has competed for the University of Victoria Vikes rugby club. Levale and the Vikes finished with two wins and two losses in the Canada West regular season, and placed fifth in the country after a successful playoff run.

The Maple Leafs team plays South Africa, Belgium and Norway’s Tabusoro clubs on day one of the event, with the day two schedule still to be determined.
