Jeff Williams - Canada U20 Coach

Canada U20 Coach Jeff Williams Announces 37 Players for Selection Camp at Shawnigan: Final 26 for JWRT Announced After August 19th Match vs BC U23

It's less than a month before the Canada U20 team depart for 20 days in Romania. There's a lot happening in between beginning with a selection camp starting August 14th and then a selection match August 19th vs BC U23 where 11 players will be cut and a final 26 will be boarding the plane on August 23rd.

Exciting times for the young men who won this honour after defeating USA in a two game series. A few players from that win are unavailable including the starting flyhalf Steven Commerford.

There were 9 players from the Canada U19 nationals that were picked up and invited to the camp to try and break into the travelling roster. Included in the 9 were 4 from BC, the Carson brothers, Lacklin Kratz and Jack Scher. A couple of Quebec players who impressed Andreas Dionisopoulos and Jackson Marquardt, 2 from Ontario Ethan Hagar and Guershom Mukendi and Campbell Clarke from Newfoundland.

Jeff Williams, head coach of Canada u20 team, has announced his squad of 37 players to attend the selection camp for the Rugby World Trophy at Shawnigan Lake School Aug 14-23. After Canada u20 play BC U23 on Aug 19 the final travelling squad of 26 will be selected. Canada will play Portugal on Aug 28, Uruguay on Sept 1, Fiji on Sept 5 and the play-off game on Sept 9.

Canada qualified by beating USA in the qualifiers in the USA in June. Of that squad of 26 Tyler Wong at hooker, Stephen Mallard at prop and Steven Commerford at flyhalf are unavailable for selection, and Martin Logan-Feek has not recovered from the fracture suffered just before the qualifiers.
