Chef d’Equipe Taylor Vard has announced his team of four who will contest the Canadian Nations Cup at Spruce Meadows on Saturday.

The Irish team has been drawn as last to go of nine nations competing.

Starting at 9pm Irish time on Saturday, the Irish will line out at the Calgary venue as:
Daniel Coyle – Cita
Dermott Lennon – Gelvins Touch
Capt Brian Cournane – Dino
Conor Swail – Rubens LS La Silla

The five-star Canadian venue has traditionally been a happy hunting ground for the Irish, and Vard’s quartet will be hoping to add to the tally with yet another victory.
