Bath Rugby quartet to face Canada

8 July 2021

Four Bath Rugby players have been named in England’s 23 to face Canada on Saturday. 

Charlie Ewels keeps his place in the second row and Sam Underhill remains on the flank as head coach Eddie Jones makes five changes to the team that began the win over USA last time out.

Wing Joe Cokanasiga scored twice in the 43-29 victory and continues in the back three while prop Beno Obano is among the replacements.


Jones said: “Our focus this camp is being as strong a 36-player squad as we can be and there has been a lot of hard work and intense competition. 

“There is a responsibility on the 23 players selected to perform to their personal best.

“We want to go out there and put smiles on the faces on all the supporters watching at Twickenham and at home on Channel 4.” 

England v Canada is live on Channel 4, with coverage starting from 2.30pm and kick-off at 3pm.
