Follow Canada at Japan 2019
Our Ambassadors for the tour
We are pleased to announce our two ambassadors for the Hitsuzendō tour, one of which knows a thing or two about Canadian rugby! Cameron and Paris Pierce are seasoned travellers and passionate about rugby. Cameron has recently retired from professional rugby and his wife Paris is (now) a rugby fanatic. Read more about them below…
“I’m a proud Canadian with a hint of French. At 19 years old I headed to France where I started a short but exciting rugby career (2011-2017) with ASM Clermont Academy to Top14 with Section Paloise. Unable to play anymore, I couldn’t be happier to return to Japan where I got my first cap for Canada Mens in 2013. Having played with the majority of the Canadians, I’m looking forward to sharing my personal passion for this Canadian squad in what promises to be an exciting World Cup. I’m also an experienced traveller having visited over 30 countries. This is not a tour you’re going to want to miss out on”.
“Bonjour! My name is Paris Pierce. Originally an avid ice hockey fan, I met my husband Cameron in 2013 where he introduced me to the sport of rugby. I quickly fell in love with the sport, its culture, and of course the Canadian National team. I have always enjoyed immersing myself in different cultures when ever possible. Whether it be in Europe, Africa, Asia or North America, I love learning and sharing new and old traditions. I am extremely excited to combine our love of travelling and rugby into one. Don’t be shy, this tour will be one to remember. “

MSG Tours Ltd is not an official or appointed agent of Rugby World Cup 2019. Our packages do not include match tickets and licensing rules prevent us from offering entry into each Group B venue as part of our travel packages. Instead, we have used our operational expertise in Japan, creativity and understanding of Ireland’s travelling supporters’ desires to pit you amongst the action at both an affordable and very attractive price. Ticket information can be found here on the tournament’s official website for those looking to purchase individually ahead of travel.
