Twenty-eight year old Canadian international Jebb Sinclair scored his first Aviva Premiership try of the season this past weekend. The utility forward crossed for a second half try from a pick-and-go metres from the opposition try line as London Irish faced the second placed Northampton Saints in an away fixture. London Irish was not able to win the match nor did it secure any bonus points but it is in no danger of being relegated out of the Aviva Premiership. 

Sinclair made a second half appearance for the London Irish Exiles from the bench. The back-rower or second-rower from Red Deer, Alberta came on in the 50th minute and crossed for his club´s third and final try in the 66th minute.

The try was his first of the season in the English premiership in what was his seventeenth appearance. With two regular season matches remaining Sinclair has played 779 minutes for London Irish, making him the highest profile Canadian playing in England.

Sinclair is expected to be included in Canada´s squad for the three match June schedule. Canada will play against both Japan and the USA in the IRB Pacific Nations Cup and will also take on Scotland. Canada it to split the two home matches between the Rugby strongholds of Vancouver and Toronto as the Greater Vancouver area will play host to Japan while Toronto will host Scotland. The match against the USA is to be played in the Californian capital of Sacramento.
