Both UK Tour matches to be broadcast in Canada on DAZN
June 29, 2021 (Langford, BC) – Head coach Kingsley Jones has named an updated 32-man squad that has travelled to the UK for two test matches against Wales and England.
Two players originally named to the team, Matt Heaton and Spencer Jones, have been forced to withdraw due to injury. Coming into the side are Donald Carson and Cooper Coats. These players join Siaki Vikilani and Corey Thomas, who were additional selections from the originally named 30-man roster. In addition, assistant coach Phil Mack will be joining the squad on Wednesday following the birth of his child. Phil will work alongside Senior Assistant Coach Rob Howley and forwards coach Jamie Cudmore.
Canada will first play Wales on July 3rd at Principality Stadium in Cardiff. The following week on July 10th Canada will face England at Twickenham Stadium in London. Jones will use these games against two of the world’s top sides as preparation for upcoming Rugby World Cup 2023 qualification matches this Fall.
Working in conjunction with the WRU and RFU, Rugby Canada is pleased to confirm that both UK Tour matches will be broadcast live in Canada on DAZN.
