Canadian All-Stars v Maori
July 18, 2003

Nine Canadian internationals have been named to the Rugby Canada All-Star roster, a team that will face the visiting New Zealand Maori in Ottawa on Wednesday July 30th.

The experience of former Canadian captain Pat Dunkley with 33 caps and the inclusion of three-time World Cup wing David Lougheed, with 31 caps and vying for selection to this year's World Cup squad, will add to the strength of the All-Stars.

Canada faces a powerful Maori roster containing seven New Zealand All Blacks and many Super 12 players and National Provincial stars including former international fullback Christian Cullen, #8 Ron Cribb, prop Greg Feek, utility Troy Flavell and forwards Joe McDonnell and Carl Hayman.

The Ottawa match presents a golden opportunity for some Canadian Super League players to demonstrate their skills in front of Canada's World Cup selectors for the final time. National Coach David Clark and his selectors will name Canada's thirty-man World Cup squad on August 17.

Canada Assistant-Coach, Brampton's John MacMillan and Mark Winokur, Head Coach of the Eastern RCSL winning Toronto Xtreme, will coach the side. The Ottawa crowd can look forward to a game of wide open, running rugby.

Rugby Canada All-Stars:
Aaron Abrams, Jonathon Ashley, Rob Barbieri, Jamie Cudmore, Derek Daypuck, Jim Douglas, Pat Dunkley, Ed Fairhurst, Ron Johnstone, Matt King, David Lougheed, Barclay Luke, Chris Moony, David Moonlight, Sean O'Leary, Simon Pacey, Chad Plater, Neil Quinn, Jeff Reid, Ryan Smith, Jason Verstraten, Matt Weingart
