Gordon McRorie was in the midst of a Canadian team media training session in Wales when he was pulled out and handed a phone to speak to a reporter.The sudden graduation somehow seemed fitting. The Scottish-born scrum half has wasted little time making his mark in a Canadian jersey.Despite not qualifying to play for Canada until May this year via residency, the 26-year-old is in a battle with Phil Mack for the starting No. 9 shirt. And with Mack currently injured, McRorie is making the most of Canadas November tour.Ive loved every minute of it, McRorie, who has no family ties to Canada, said of his brief time with the national team. This is what I wanted to do for a long time — play international rugby. Its been a dream come true.He scored two tries last Saturday in a 28-23 loss to an RFU Championship XV side in Worcester, England, and will start again Friday when Canada, ranked 17th in the world, takes on No. 22 Namibia in Colwyn Bay, Wales.Both teams are headed to the World Cup next year, albeit in different pools. Namibia is the only one of the 20 teams at the 2015 tournament that has yet to win a game at the rugby showcase.Canada is in sore need of a win itself, after four straight losses this year. Its last victory was a 52-8 decision over Portugal in Lisbon last November.McRorie first came to Canada in 2010 when he visited a friend from university in Edmonton for two weeks. He liked what he saw and moved to Canada in May 2011. He had finished at Sterling University in Scotland and wanted to try something new.He eventually settled in Calgary where then-Hornets coach Graeme Moffat made him welcome at his club.McRorie, who also plays for the Prairie Wolf Pack, had no thought that the move might lead to playing for Canada. But Moffat suggested a year later that perhaps he should stick around and see what happens.He soon drew the attention of national team coaches and was available for selection in late May this year after qualifying through three years of Canadian residency.Im pretty chuffed that I came here, he said.He made his Canada debut on June 7 against Japan, at Swangard Stadium, in Burnaby. And a week later he came on late against his native Scotland.He had a bit of a rocky start, giving up a penalty on a flubbed box kick against the Scots. But he has acquitted himself well since, winning selection to Canadas Americas Rugby Championship team prior to going on tour.Coach Kieran Crowley has made five changes to the side that lost to the RFU Championship XV in Worcester, England, on Saturday. That game was not considered a test match with Canada missing some of its pros because the game fell outside the IRB November test window.Prop Jason Marshall, fresh from his appearance with the Barbarians, comes into the pack along with London Irish lock Jebb Sinclair.Connor Braid, Jeff Hassler and DTH van der Merwe enter the backline at fly half, wing and fullback, respectively.Jordan Wilson-Ross starts on the bench and could win his first cap.Canada lost to Samoa and beat Russia two years ago at Parc Eirias, site of Fridays game. Sinclair, Buydens, Doug Wooldridge and Sean White were some of the Canadians involved in the RGC 1404 team that played at Welsh facility a few seasons ago.The Canadians head to France after Fridays match to take on No. 9 Samoa in Vannes on Nov. 14 before wrapping up the tour Nov. 22 in Bucharest against No. 16 Romania.Canada and Romania are both in Pool D at the World Cup, along with No. 5 Ireland, No. 7 France and No. 14 Italy. ---CanadaHubert Buydens (capt.), Prairie Wolf Pack, Saskatoon; Ray Barkwill, Niagara Wasps, Niagara Falls, Ont.; Jason Marshall, Hawkes Bay (New Zealand), Vancouver; Tyler Hotson, Doncaster Knights (England), Vancouver; Jebb Sinclair, London Irish (England), Fredericton; Kyle Gilmour, St. Albert RFC, St. Albert, Alta.; Nanyak Dala, Castaway Wanderers, Regina; John Moonlight, James Bay AA, Pickering, Ont.; Gordon McRorie, Calgary Hornets, Calgary; Connor Braid, Glasgow Warriors (Scotland), Victoria; Sean Duke, UVIC Vikes, Vancouver; Ciaran Hearn, Castaway Wanderers, Conception Bay South, N.L.; Conor Trainor, UBCOB Ravens, Vancouver; Jeff Hassler,- Ospreys (Wales), Okotoks, Alta.; DTH van der Merwe, Glasgow Warriors (Scotland), Regina.ReplacementsDoug Wooldridge, Lindsay RFC, Lindsay, Ont.; Ryan Hamilton, Capilano RFC, Vancouver; Jake Ilnicki, NSW Country Eagles (Australia), Williams Lake, B.C.; Brett Buekeboom, Plymouth Albion (England), Lindsay, Ont.; Aaron Carpenter, Cornish Pirates RFC (England), Brantford, Ont.; Sean White, James Bay AA, Victoria; Patrick Parfrey, Swilers RFC, St. Johns, N.L.; Jordan Wilson-Ross, James Bay AA, Alliston, Ont.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Yeezy Schuhe Bestellen .

Thats 14 consecutive losses to the two-time defending champs, and most of them were over before they even began. Result notwithstanding, Sundays game had a very different feel to it.On July 24, 2014, MLS expansion team New York City FC unveiled Frank Lampard as the club’s latest star player, following on from the signing of Spanish striker David Villa. At the time of the announcement, the club and the league went to great lengths to laud the arrival of Lampard as a sign that NYCFC meant business when it came to building their inaugural squad. In their press release, NYCFC stated that Lampard “has signed a two-year contract which starts August 1st (2014), while the player was quoted as saying this: “I am really excited about joining New York City FC and helping to play a real part in building something special in one of the sporting capitals of the world” and “It is a privilege to be able to help make history here in New York City - I just can’t wait to get started and be part of it.” Just two weeks later, the club announced that Lampard would be joining Manchester City – owned by the same group as NYCFC - in England ahead of his debut season in MLS. In that press release, Lampard was quoted as saying this: “Joining up with Manchester City is a fantastic opportunity for me to continue to train and play at the top level and make sure I am in top condition for New York City.” The assumption was that Lampard would be returning to New York at the end of 2014 in order to fully participate in NYCFC’s preseason training camp in the lead up to their first game in MLS. Since joining Manchester City, however, Lampard has made a real impact at the Premier League club – much more so than many would have expected. While he has rarely played a full 90-minute game for City, he has carved out a niche at the club as an impact player who can be relied upon to score goals and swing games in City’s favour when they need a push late on or to solidify the midfield when they need to manage a lead to the final whistle. Lampard’s spell at City has gone so well that City boss Manuel Pellegrini felt the need to extend Lampard’s stay at the club until the end of the Premier League season. There are conflicting reports about how it is even possible for that stay to be extended, as well as the terms under which Lampard initially joined Manchester City. City’s own press release stated the following: “Manchester City can confirm that it has extended Frank Lampard’s contract up to the end of Manchester City’s season, enabling his continued participation in both domestic and European campaigns.” While this may just be a case of the club making a poor choice in wording, there is a big difference between a “contract” and a “loan” in football. A contract implies ownership of a player; a loan implies an agreement between two clubs, whereby the player returns to the club that owns his playing rights at the end of the specified term of the loan. While it was originally reported that Lampard had joined City on loan back in August – as he would have had to do, since it was announced that Lampard’s NYCFC contract started on August 1 – a report from Sports Illustrated journalist Grant Wahl confirmed that this was not the case. According to Wahl’s report, MLS contends “Lampard entered into an agreement with the City Football Group to play under an MLS contract for 2015 and ’16 and to play for Man City until the end of 2014 under a Man City contract. Now that Lampard’s Man City contract has been extended to the end of this season, he will join NYCFC in July and play under an MLS contract.” The entire saga flies in the face of comments made by MLS Commissioner Don Garber in his state of the league address back in December, where he spoke about the league’s perceived lack of transparency.dddddddddddd “We recognize that things aren’t as easy for people to understand as they need to be, explained Garber. We look at the Jermaine Jones situation. We had a mechanism, the only mechanism that we could have put in place, to have Jermaine Jones signed in MLS. There was no other way to do it based on the rules that we have, but the public doesn’t understand our rules and most of the media don’t either. As I did say in 2014, transparency is a priority. Transparency is a big priority in 2015. If Garber is serious about transparency being a priority for the league, then situations like Lampard’s – let alone the “blind draw” that saw US international Jones land in New England - simply cannot be allowed to happen. There is a reason that “the public doesn’t understand our rules and most of the media don’t either” as Garber put it – the league’s rules continue to change. While a single-entity league like MLS is certainly unique in the world of football, it isn’t as difficult to understand as some suggest. If the league wants its fans and media to understand its rules, then MLS needs to start by documenting all of the league rules on the league’s website so that fans and media alike can dissect them. MLS fans are passionate, dedicated supporters and they are being robbed of the chance to invest more of their emotional energy into their teams because the league’s rules – particularly the ones regarding player acquisitions - are unclear, unknown or changing on the fly. Consider allocation money, as an example. Allocation money and how it relates to the league’s salary cap isn’t as complicated as nuclear physics - anyone with even a basic understanding of mathematics can add up a team’s salary expenditures and measure that against the salary cap. What better way to create debate and discussion amongst supporters than to have them quibble over the valuation of a signing or trade? When a team trades a player within the league in exchange for allocation money, fans and media alike should have the opportunity to evaluate that trade based on the amount of allocation money exchanged. The fact that the MLS Players Union publishes the MLS player salaries is an added bonus; it gives fans more information with which to assess the performance and value of players. Opponents will contend that transfer fees are rarely disclosed when a player is bought, sold or traded in the world of football. While this is true, that information almost always makes it into the public forum, usually through an intermediary such as a player agent or reporter. There are positives for both clubs in doing this. The selling club can show its supporters that it is receiving value in exchange for selling one of its star players, while the buying club can show its fans that it is committed to achieving success and is willing to spend the money needed to do so. Fans can judge whether or not their club is providing its fans with an entertaining product given its investment in playing personnel, as well as assess the competency of their club’s management team. It’s also important to consider that MLS is a unique league – something that league executives are quick to point out – and as such, might require a different approach to informing its supporters of how its players move from team to team. One thing is certain, though: keeping fans in the dark will not help MLS grow. If anything, it will drive passionate fans of the beautiful game away from the league, frustrated by the league’s hesitancy to tell fans what is really going on. ' ' '
