Mark Bokhoven is still sidelined with a torn ACL, but RUGBYMag's Pat Clifton caught up with him at Denver 7s to talk about recovery, the Pan-Am games, a high school 7s camp in Iowa (Mark went to Iowa State) and his club the Denver Barbarians.
The Dog River Howlers finished second Saturday at the the International Abbotsford Rugby 7's which teams from six countries participated in. University of Saskatchewan Huskies running back Jeff Hassler, who plays his rugby with the Calgary Hornets, and Calgary Irish's Ian Shoults led the way, scoring seven tries each.
En route to the final game, in which they lost 33-28 to the Fiji Ambassadors (with 8 capped Fijian National Team players), the Howlers racked up wins against the Cayman Islands National Team, Mexican National Team, Burnaby Lake Buffaloes and Valley High, which was made up of a collection of high-level Canadian players, most with national team experience.
The Howlers lost one game in their preliminary round to Fijian club Ratsu Filise, which had placed second to Canada's National Team at the previous week's Victoria 7's. Other prominent international teams competing in the tournament were a Kenyan National Select team and the British Army. The Howlers' next competition will be Mexico's Cancun 7s Nov. 26-27, followed by Cuba's Havana Howlers 7s Dec. 2-3.
