Canada Sevens Squad for Wellington and Las Vegas

Nanyak Dala
Caanda has announced squads of twelve players for both upcoming legs of the IRB World Sevens Series - Wellington and Las Vegas. The squads are packed with some of Canada´s biggest names including multiple players who featured at Rugby World Cup 2011. Nanyak Dala, Sean Duke, Ciaran Hearn, Nathan Hirayama, Taylor Paris, Conor Trainor and Sean White are all in the squad for both tournaments and will be entering the Wellington event, which is to be played on February 3-4, wanting to go far. Despite the list of notable players it is far from being Canada´s ebst Sevens side as a number of players are unavaliable through injury including Phil Mack, Thyssen de Geode, Mike Scholtz and Lukas Balkovec. While Canada´s overseas based players are all unavaliable. The likes of Chauncey O’Toole, DTH van der Merwe, Adam Kleeberger, Phil Mackenzie and Matt Evans would all be in the team if they were still based in Canada.
