Phil Berna brings a contagious energy to the Canadian squad with pace to spare. Berna’s long strides make him a weapon on the wing, making defenders pay with one wrong move. Since his debut for Canada in 2016, Berna has scored 75 points in 79 games on the World Rugby Sevens Series. Eight of Berna’s 15 tries came in the 2019 season as he played a critical role in Canada qualifying for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Berna also represented Canada at the World Rugby U20 Trophy back in 2015.
