Canada Lacrosse Roster – 2018 FIL Championships

What was likely the most anticipated roster revealing in lacrosse history cracked through seemingly out of nowhere this afternoon as Canada broke the silence of the list of 23 men defending gold next month. Recent months have featured nearly endless news questioning the 2014 FIL World Lacrosse Championships victors status in this year’s games, who would be on the team, and if they would even have on to begin with. What would a world event be without our friends up north, especially after they stole the top spot from the Americans in Denver’s finals.

Coach Randy Mearns will be tasked with pulling the focus together in just a few short weeks to make a run at a repeat. Alongside Mearns will be a staff consisting of Matt Brown, Taylor Wray, Merrick Thomson, Mark Miyashita and Jason Levesque, all a part of the process of selecting and evelatuationg the squad since the conclusion of 2014’s games. 10 athletes from the gold medal squad will put on the Red and White again, including: Wes Berg, Kevin Crowley, Curtis Dickson, Mark Matthews; Jason Noble; Jeremy Noble; Dillon Ward; Brennan Donville; and Geoff Snider and Brody Merrill, returning for their 4th runs. Three U19 silver medal winning stars will make the jump to the senior roster: Tre Leclaire; Ryland Rees; and Jeff Teat.

It’s no secret they’ll have their work cut out for them against a revenge seeking team from the US, the Iroquois powerhouse, always tough England and Australia, and now Scotland getting a chance to dethrone the king for the first time. Here’s the list of weapons Canada will have to use next month in Israel.
