Rugby 15s U20 Men

Jeff Williams, head coach of Canada’s Men’s Under-20 team, has announced his squad of 37 players to attend the selection camp for the Junior World Rugby Trophy at Shawnigan Lake School on Vancouver Island August 14-23

After Canada U-20 play BC U-23 on August 19, the final travelling squad of 26 will be selected. Canada will play Portugal on August 28, Uruguay on September 1, Fiji on September 5 and the play-off game on September 9.
Canada qualified by beating USA in the two-game qualifying series in the Texax last month. Of that squad of 26, Tyler Wong at hooker, Stephen Mallard at prop and Steven Commerford at outhalf are unavailable for selection, and Martin Logan-Feek has not recovered from the fracture suffered just before the series.
The recent Under-19 Canadian Rugby Championship in Saskatoon, SK was attended by both Jeff Williams and Gethin Watts. The performances of Frank Carson, Nick Carson, Campbell Clarke, Andreas Dionisopoulos, Ethan Hagar, Lackie Kratz, Jackson Marquardt, Guershom Mukendi and Jack Scher were rewarded by selection to the squad.
