Canada has "jumped" a place in the International standings after last weekend's win over Tonga.  Ireland sits five places ahead of the hosts and come off a close victory over the U.S.A. last weekend.  Ireland will be without some of their regulars who are serving duty with the British Lions in Australia.  The forward pack looks strong if they are all "healthy"....a tough ask after three test matches on the trot and the only change of significance in the backs, sees Evans out, no doubt due to concussion protocol and Braid resuming as custodian.  The team looks solid in all areas and it will be excitng to see how team mates, Mack and Hirayama combine at this level.  REMEMBER CW HAS DOORS OPEN AT DISCOVERY ST TEMPLE @ 4:30 p.m.  Go, CANADA, go!!
