DTH van der Merwe has been selected for his fourth World Cup
Glasgow winger DTH van der Merwe will make his fourth World Cup appearance for Canada in Japan and get the chance to play against the country of his birth for the first time.

Van der Merwe emigrated to Canada from South Africa as a teenager and made his test debut as a 20-year-old in a qualifier for the 2007 World Cup.

He has appeared at every tournament since and accumulated 57 test caps but has never faced the Springboks, who Canada will meet in Kobe on October 8.

The Canadians open their Pool B campaign against Italy in Fukuoka on September 26 before meeting world champions New Zealand on October 2 and finishing against Namibia on October 13.
