Zapping Fifteen Worlds Six Nations Tournament: Winners Under the Microscope
Canada will travel to the UK in July to play two games, one against the Welsh in Cardiff on 3 July and the other against England’s Eddie Jones on 10 July.
The group, announced by Canadian coach Kingsley Jones, is primarily made up of players playing in the Major League as twenty-five of them are from that league. The most represented club on this list and the Toronto Arrows club with nine players on the counter. Note that only one player is selected from the French Championship, this being the scrum half of Stade-Français, Ville Persilier. Other French Canadians were not selected (Tyler Ardron, Matt Tierney, Tyler Duguid or Evan Olmsted).
