Canada’s selection will be led by Canada men’s rugby team coach Phil Mack, who will be supported by John MacFarland and Dave Butcher.

Players from both teams have put in a lot of work over the past few weeks and months, and we look forward to seeing that work continue when we bring this group together for a week of intensive training. »
