Ontario Blues Senior Men's Head Coach Chris Silverthorn has named his 23 man squad for Saturday's rugby clash with professional side Glendale Raptors of Major League Rugby. The match will be played in Burlington, Ontario at Sherwood Forest Park. Gates open at 1:00pm and kick-off is at 3:00pm.
Five changes have been made to the squad that prevailed in New York three weeks ago, including the additions of Glasgow Warriors prop Djustice Sears-Duru, Lindsay flanker Jeremy Wright, Toronto Scottish center Alex Colborne and Rugby Canada centrally carded players, wing Dan Moor and hooker Eric Howard.
“Its still early in our season, but the guys have now had a few games under their belt and the attitude at training has been excellent," said Silverthorn. "We know they are a pro team that is way ahead of us in preparation, but we feel we can look forward to a very even contest.”
Tickets for the match are available at the gate for $10/person. If you are planning on attending in a group of 25 or more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday May 19 to receive a discounted rate.
