Shepherd late call up for Counties tour to Canada

Cornwall’s Matt Shepherd has been called up for England Counties tour to Canada.

Shepherd joins fellow Cornish players Tom Cowan-Dickie and Craig Williams in the touring party.

The tour will begin on Friday 3 June in Vancouver with a match against BC Bears who they last played on the 2010 Canada tour.

The team will then travel 600 miles to Calgary where they will face Prairie Wolf Pack, winners of the 2015 Canadian Rugby Championship, on Tuesday 7 June.

Their final match will be against Ontario Blues in Toronto on Saturday 11 June who they beat 32-26 when the teams last met in 2010.

England Counties is the flagship team of the Community Game in England and offers players from National League One and below the opportunity to represent their country.
