Rumball featured in all five matches in the shortened 2020 campaign, and has made 11 appearances over his two seasons with the club. The powerful loose forward has developed a reputation as one of the top tacklers in North America’s top flight, making 163 tackles with a completion rate of 94.8%. A member of the club’s senior leadership group since joining the league, Rumball has also made 89 carries, run for 359 carry metres, completed nine offloads, and scored two tries over the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
Internationally, the 25-year-old flanker has amassed 35 caps – including 32 starts – for Canada since making his international debut against Uruguay in February 2016, including featuring at the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Rumball has captained Canada on six occasions, becoming the third-youngest player (22y 218d) to lead the nation into a match when Canada faced Russia in June 2018. He also represented the Canada under-20s in both 2014 (as an under-ager) and 2015.
Rumball is a graduate of the Ontario Blues senior men’s provincial program and the Queen’s Gaels post-secondary program, and played his grassroots rugby with Balmy Beach.
