Canada Head Coach Kieran Crowley has made three changes to his starting roster for Saturdays International Test Match against Scotland at BMO Field in Toronto. The announcement, which took place on Thursday morning in the team hotel in Oakville ahead of a double training day, comes two days before his side plays their second game of the June International Series. Canada was defeated 34-25 last Saturday at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby, BC and will also face USA next Saturday in Sacramento, California; both games are part of the 2014 Pacific Nations Cup campaign. In the forwards, Aaron Carpenter slots into the front row at hooker to join props Hubert Buydens and Jason Marshall. Canadas engine room stays unchanged with the duo of Tyler Hotson and Jamie Cudmore returning to action on Saturday. Jebb Sinclair will make his first appearance for Canada this year at blindside flanker after missing the Japan game with a leg strain and will join Japan try-scorer John Moonlight and Captain Tyler Ardron in Canadas back-row. "It feels great to be back. Im thankful to our physiotherapy team for working hard with me over the last week to help me get fit," said Sinclair following the roster announcement. Fiery scrumhalf Phil Mack will get the nod on Saturday and provide the link to fellow Canada Sevens stalwart Harry Jones, who will lead the backs at number 10. The rest of Canadas backline remains untouched with the duo of Nick Blevins and Ciaran Hearn in the centres and Jeff Hassler, Taylor Paris and James Pritchard rounding out the back three. Substitutes for Canada include Ray Barkwill, Andrew Tiedemann and Jake Ilnicki in the front row, Kyle Gilmour, Jon Phelan, Gord McRorie, Connor Braid and DTH van der Merwe. With next years Rugby World Cup edging closer by the day, Saturdays test match will be another big opportunity for Canada to face a similar side to what they will see next year in the UK. Three out of four of Canadas Pool D World Cup opponents – Ireland, France and Italy – regularly face Scotland in the annual Six Nations competition and play a similar brand of European rugby. Despite the similarities between Scotland and next years opponents, Sinclair isnt looking beyond this weekends challenge. "None of us are thinking about next years World Cup; all our attention is focused on Saturday at 2pm and were hoping to replicate our fast start from last weekend against Japan. We need to fix a few defensive errors that let us down in the second half," said the Fredericton, New Brunswick native. "I think Scotlands game plan matches up well with how Canadians like to play – big, direct, hard ball runners – and they have a strong set piece that theyve turned around recently under (Vern) Cotter," added Sinclair. "Were excited for the challenge and looking forward to playing in front of a packed house at BMO Field on Saturday." In order to have success on Saturday, Crowleys outfit will need to first and foremost establish a physical presence and eliminate costly mistakes. During last weekends loss to Japan, Canada gave away 15 points from penalties off the boot of fullback Ayumu Goromaru. The Scots are fresh off a 24-6 victory over USA in Houston, Texas in newly appointed coach Vern Cotters debut. Scrumhalf Greig Laidlaw was good for three conversions and one penalty for nine of Scotlands points against USA, with tries also coming from fullback Stuart Hogg, winger Tim Visser and one penalty try.

Up next are Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins. The 2011 Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor returns to Texas after embarrassing Dallas with a huge second quarter to win his first NFL game in his home state last Thanksgiving. Coverage begins with Football Night in America, tonight at 7pm et/4pm pt on TSN. Kickoff follows at 8:15pm et/5:15pm pt. Dallas defenders are at a low point again because Tony Romos franchise-record 506 yards passing and five touchdowns werent enough in a 51-48 loss to Manning and Denver last weekend. "Weve got a sense of pride in this group," Dallas defensive tackle Jason Hatcher said. "I know Im hurting because Im part of this defence. One thing weve got to do, weve got to clean it up. We got another good quarterback coming in here." The Redskins go into Sunday nights game at the $1.2 billion home of the Cowboys with similar problems. Theyre last in the NFL in passing defence, one spot behind Dallas. But Washington is coming off a win over Oakland and a bye after starting the season 0-3, while the Cowboys are trying to avoid their first three-game losing streak since 2010. "Yeah, that was our goal — go into that last game before the bye week, get the win, allow that momentum to carry us the rest of the way throughout the season," said Griffin, who threw for more than 300 yards in all three losses. "I think everybody has the right mindset coming back rejuvenated, ready to go." Griffin and Alfred Morris combined to give Washington its first sweep of Dallas since 2005 last year. Griffin completed all eight passes for 178 yards and three touchdowns in a 28-point second quarter, and the Redskins held on for a 38-31 win on Thanksgiving. In the finale with the NFC East title on the line, Morris rushed for a career-high 200 yards and three scores in a 28-18 victory. That put the Redskins in the playoffs for the first time in five years and extended Dallas post-season drought to three years. But now Griffin is less of a dual threat while he continues his recovery from knee surgery, and Morris isnt getting the same number of carries because the Redskins fell behind in all three losses. "Theyre best when they hand him the ball," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said of Morris. "Hes a good football player and theyy want to run the football.dddddddddddd And we have to be prepared to stop him because a lot of what they do comes off his success running the football." Here are five things to know as the Redskins go for their first three-game winning streak against the Cowboys since 1988: ROUGH WEEK FOR ROMO: Hes getting beaten up again for another late-game mistake that spoiled an otherwise sublime day. This time it was Danny Trevathans interception at the Dallas 24 in the final two minutes, leading to Denvers winning field as time expired. "He played his butt off," Hatcher said. "We didnt give them a chance to win. So its on the defence." NICKNAME DEBATE: The Redskins are playing their first game since President Barack Obama joined others in saying the team should consider changing its nickname over concerns that its offensive to Native Americans. And this week, owner Daniel Snyder renewed his support of the name in a letter to season ticket-holders. "You dont want to minimize anything thats going on outside of these walls, but inside these walls we have to focus on football and thats what our goal has to be," Griffin said. BEVY OF RECEIVERS: Dallas rookie Terrance Williams had a career-high 151 yards with Miles Austin out for a second straight game with a hamstring problem. It appears Austin will be back, which means Romo has six guys who have made big plays in the passing game this year. Dez Bryant, Jason Witten, Gavin Escobar and Cole Beasley are the others. "Theres no other way to put it," said Bryant, who has six touchdowns. "We are explosive. Thats our identity: our explosive offence." BACK FROM SUSPENSION: Defensive end Jarvis Jenkins and linebacker Rob Jackson will play their first games for the Redskins since their four-game suspensions ended last week. Jenkins tested positive for a banned performance enhancing substance, while Jackson was suspended under the NFLs drug policy. Both said their violations were unintentional. QB PRESSURE: These teams are trending in opposite directions with the pass rush. The Cowboys had just one sack total against Rivers and Manning after getting 13 the first three games. The Redskins had a season-high seven against the Raiders, just the second time theyve had that many since 2010. ___ Online: AP NFL website: ___ Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at ' ' '
