A trio of local rugby players have been named to Rugby Canada’s under-20 men’s roster for a tour to the United States this weekend.

Jorden Best, Justin Douglas and Ryan March will be part of a squad which will travel to Blaine, Minn. to play their U.S. counterparts on May 8 and 11.

The games are tune-ups for the Junior World Rugby Trophy tournament in Chile later this month (May 28 to June 9), and head coach Mike Shelley’s roster will closely resemble the Canadian squad going to Chile, with the addition of a few spares.
