Canada’s Men’s Rugby Team’s match day roster for this weekend’s international test match against Namibia, presented by DHL, has been confirmed.

November 17, 2022 (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – Canada’s Men’s Rugby Team’s match day roster for this weekend’s international test match against Namibia, presented by DHL, has been confirmed.

Head Coach Kingsley Jones’ squad will take on Namibia in Amsterdam, Netherlands at 2:30 p.m. local time (5:30 a.m. PT/8:30 a.m. ET) on Saturday November 19 at the National Rugby Center Amsterdam.

“When this fixture against Namibia was announced the group was excited,” Jones said, following the disappointment from the 2019 Rugby World Cup match in Japan that was cancelled due to a typhoon.

Canada recently climbed to No. 21 in the World Rugby rankings after their 37-25 win over the Netherlands last weekend. Namibia qualified for the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France after they defeated Kenya in the 2022 Rugby Africa Cup in July.

In the forwards, Djustice Sears-Duru enters the starting line-up after coming off the bench against the Netherlands. Next to him in the scrum will be Andrew Quattrin who also gets the call from Jones to start the match after being listed as a reserve last weekend. Conor Keys will start at lock while Corey Thomas moves to the back row to play flank.

Jason Higgins draws the start at scrum half, acting as the main ball distributor to an identical backline that helped propel Canada to victory over the Dutch last Saturday.

“The players have trained extremely hard this week and as a squad we feel prepared to take on a tough Namibian team,” added Jones. “A couple of our players picked up injuries last weekend, but I feel we have the right group to take on an opponent who are preparing for the next World Cup in France. Playing these types of matches will help our players develop as we continue to build our program towards the next World Cup qualification period starting in 2025.”
