Its been quite a run of late for Canadian rugby international Hubert Buydens.Last Friday in New Zealand, the 32-year-old prop from Saskatoon helped the Manawatu Tubos earn promotion with a 32-24 win over Hawkes Bay in the NPC Championship final.On Sunday, Buydens will captain a Canada XV against an RFU Championship XV in Worcester, England.The game against an all-star squad from Englands second-tier league is the first of four for Canada on its November tour of Europe.Canadian coach Kieran Crowleys squad will be reinforced for the remaining games on the tour, which fall within the International Rugby Boards Test window unlike Sundays contest. Canada, ranked 17th in the world, will meet No. 22 Namibia in Colwyn Bay, Wales, on Nov. 7, No. 9 Samoa in Vannes, France, on Nov. 14, and No. 16 Romania in Bucharest on Nov. 22.Samoa, Namibia and Romania will join Canada at next years World Cup, with Canada and Romania both featuring in Pool D, alongside France, Ireland and Italy.Buydens has been named captain for the entire tour. Skipper Tyler Ardron, who plays for the Ospreys in Wales, is recovering from an injury and will be joining the team later in the tour.Buydens also captained Canada in a 52-8 win over Portugal last November.It was a bit of a surprise when they told me I was going to be captaining, he said of this tour. But its always a great honour. Ill try and do my best.The Canada tour has reunited Buydens, a loosehead prop, with Jason Marshall, a 29-year-old tighthead prop from North Vancouver.Amazingly the two Canucks found themselves facing off in the New Zealand final, with Marshall starting for Hawkes Bay.The two props, who both go under the nickname Moose in New Zealand, came to rugby from a football background. Buydens, a former offensive lineman with the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, had a tryout with the B.C. Lions while Marshall played quarterback for Simon Fraser and tried out for the Edmonton Eskimos.Buydens had the last laugh in last weeks New Zealand final. Not only did his team win, but he and the Manawatu pack earned a memorable penalty on one scrum that saw Marshall propelled upwards like a rocket.That one definitely felt pretty good, Buydens said with a chuckle. Hes taking a bit of guff from the boys that he was on the losing end of that one.Despite a gruelling campaign in New Zealand, Buydens says his body is feeling good.My body came through A-OK, he said. Everything that should hurt or normally does hurt does hurt and everything that shouldnt doesnt, so its all good that way.Buydens says he will have to miss out on Manawatu next year given preparations for the World Cup, which runs Sept. 18 to Oct. 31 in England and Wales.It is a little disappointing that way but definitely playing for Canada is the priority, he said.Buydens expects to return to Saskatoon after the tour and spend Christmas at home. He will then look to play overseas or, barring that, settle in Victoria.Buydens enjoyed his second season in New Zealand, living in Palmerston North where rugby players do not go unnoticed.Its a beautiful place, he said. Everyone knows who you are ... people stop you in the street, talk to you about rugby , how youre doing and how the teams doing.At six foot three and 275 pounds with a healthy beard — he was one of Canadas famed beardos at the last World Cup — Buydens is hard to miss.I stick out a little bit, yeah, he said.Canada is looking to step it up on tour after going 0-3 in June against Japan, Scotland and the U.S. A domestic Canada A side also disappointed in finishing third at the Americas Rugby Championship earlier this month.Worcester Warriors lock James Percival will captain the RFU Championship side.A lot of the Canadian boys play in that league so it will be good to measure ourselves against them and hopefully get one up on them, Buydens said.———Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter.

Watching them over the past year - and in some cases, two years - has given us a starting point for this seasons Craigs List.Sven-Goran Eriksson believes Sam Allardyce could use different tactics at international level to those with which he has made his name as a club manager. Allardyce is expected to be confirmed as England manager on Thursday, taking over from Roy Hodgson, who left the role after the national side was knocked out of Euro 2016 by Iceland. How England chose Sam A look at the men charged with appointing the new England boss The 61-year-old Sunderland boss has faced criticism throughout his career for what some believe to be an overly defensive and direct style of play. But Eriksson, who managed England between 2001 and 2006, feels that has been a necessity because clubs Allardyce has taken charge of have often been fighting relegation and that it will be different in the international arena. Allardyce is expected to be confirmed as the new England manager on Thursday Sam has been there for a long, long time and hes done a good job wherever hes been, he told Sky Sports News HQ. Hes very organised so that will be a very organised team I suppose. So why not? Good luck, Sam.If you take a team from the lower part of the table, you have to adapt what you want to do. You have to defend and be organised or you will go down. Sunderlands 3-0 win at Hartlepool is likely to be Allardyces last game in charge So I think it depends on the situation, whether you have a top team, a middle team or a bottom team.ddddddddddddMany times Sam has managed a team that has been struggling for survival and he has done the job.Eriksson accepts dealing with the English press can be a difficult part of the job but feels Allardyce has enough experience to be able to handle such pressure. Kevin Davies thinks Allardyce will bring a winning mentality, pride and passion to the England managers job I don t think Sam needs any advice, he said. I know that for many years he has wanted that job. He knows the English press well and that is the least pleasant part of the job.But he will do a good job. I hope so. Im sure he will.
