Canada head coach Kingsley Jones has named his team to face Coventry on Monday evening in the second match of their Autumn tour

Canada opened their tour with a 26-20 win over Oxford University on October 31.

Following tomorrow's match, the roster will be trimmed down to just 30 players to travel to Marseille to continue preparing to face Kenya on Remembrance Day.
