FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

STARTING XV: ONTARIO ARROWS NAME LINEUP FOR FIRST MEETING WITH RUGBY UNITED NEW YORK


Ontario Arrows head coach Chris Silverthorn has named his starting lineup for Saturday’s away clash against newly-appointed Major League Rugby side Rugby United New York.

Silverthorn has made three changes to his Arrows side that drew MLR’s Houston SaberCats 28-28 on Mar. 3, opting to bring in backs Josh Campbell and Kyle Lagasca, as well as lock Tom Van Horne.

Squad Notes:

– Five Arrows will make their first start for the club: Kelly, Lagasca, Lynott, McRogers, J. Van Horne
– Two players are in contention to make their Arrows debut off the substitutes’ bench: Smith, T. Van Horne
– Campbell and Lagasca return to the Arrows lineup after featuring in Ontario’s first-ever match last fall (Sept. 9, 2017 vs. Glendale Merlins)
– Four squad members are full Canadian internationals: Brouwer (9 caps), Ciulini (6 caps), Dolezel (16 caps), Wilson (1 cap)

Rugby United New York recently joined MLR as an associate member; New York’s first professional rugby team will play an exhibition schedule in 2018 before playing a full MLR schedule beginning in 2019.

Saturday’s match will be played at Iona College’s Mazzela Field, and will kick off at 2 p.m. EDT.
