Rock Announce Squad for Canadian Rugby Championship

July 10, 2011 - The Rock have announced their senior squad of 30 players for the Canadian Rugby Championship and allied u20 squad of 12 players following completion of the Atlantic League and games between Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Quebec. Frank Walsh, Jebb Sinclair, Chauncey O’Toole and Ciaran Hearn have been chosen for Canada’s Rugby World Cup squad and are not included.

“We have decided to choose 30 players for the senior squad plus 2 unprotected players because they have played well with us this year. Similarly we have chosen 12 players for the u20 squad plus 6 unprotected players because we feel the latter have potential for the future” commented the Rock Director of Rugby, Pat Parfrey.

“We intend to invite 3 u20s as members of our senior squad on our upcoming trip to the west: Patrick Parfrey, Kyle Baillie and Yannick Fortin, when we will play BC Bears on July 30 in Vancouver and the Prairie Wolf Pack on August 2 in Calgary.”
