CLERMONT-FERRAND, France — Canada's women's rugby sevens team has made it to France for the final stop of the World Series season.
But its luggage was not so fortunate.
The Canadian women left Sunday, flying from Victoria to Montreal and then Lyon.
"All the players and staff made it but almost everyone's bag didn't," coach John Tait said in an email to The Canadian Press. "Air Canada have given us the same response that they haven't heard back from their baggage team yet! 38 hours and counting!
"Luckily most of the ladies carried on the cleats but not much else."
Veteran Ashley Steacy tweeted a photo of the team holding shopping bags.
"Hoping we get our bags b4 our tourney this weekend! Had 2 do a bit of shopping yesterday so we could train today. @AirCanada #21bagsmissing," she wrote.
The Clermont-Ferrand tournament, the last of six this season, runs Saturday and Sunday. Canada, which has won one event and finished runner-up at two others this season, is currently tied with Australia for second in the overall standings. New Zealand tops the table.
