July 8, 2021 (Langford, BC) – Head coach Kingsley Jones has named his side to face England this Saturday, July 10th at Twickenham Stadium in London. Kick off at 10am ET / 7am PT.
Lucas Rumball (Toronto Arrows) who led Canada last weekend against Wales has been named captain and Ben LeSage (Toronto Arrows) has once again been named vice-captain.
