Breen, 21, will arrive at the club after spending several months with Canada’s men’s sevens program, highlighted by appearances at both the Commonwealth Games and the Rugby World Cup Sevens over the summer months.
Despite still several months shy of turning 22, the six-foot, 200-pound back has already enjoyed a rugby career that has seen him make stops across the globe.
After turning heads as an 18-year-old standout in his home province of British Columbia, Breen was invited to travel overseas to join French side Biarritz Olympique’s academy in 2019.
Following a year spent back home at the start of the pandemic, Breen was again extended an offer to develop his game in France, this time on a senior academy contract with Carcassonne signed in 2021; his professional debut in Pro D2 soon followed.
Breen’s bow for Canada on the World Rugby Sevens Series came shortly thereafter, with the speedy back earning national team call-ups for both stops on the abbreviated 2021 circuit.
After continuing with the sevens program throughout the spring and summer, the Victoria native has most recently been featuring for the Pacific Pride – Rugby Canada’s national development academy program – in the British Columbia Premier League as he prepares for the 2023 MLR season.
The Canada under-20 graduate played his grassroots rugby with Cowichan.
