Sinclair takes his place in Canada World Cup squad

London Irish forward Jebb Sinclair is the sole Aviva Premiership Rugby representative in Canada’s Rugby World Cup squad.

Head coach Kieran Crowley has called on the 29-year-old, who joined the Exiles back in 2011 and has 37 caps to his name, alongside a number of other players who ply their trade in Europe.

Jamie Cudmore – Clermont’s veteran second row – leads that crowd alongside Ospreys’ Tyler Ardron, who is named as captain.

Winger DTH van der Merwe, who swapped Glasgow Warriors for the Scarlets this winter, is included as well as Connor Braid and Jeff Hassler.

Canada will line up in Pool D with Ireland, France, Italy and Romania, kicking off their campaign against Joe Schmidt’s men in green in Cardiff on September 19.
