Team Canada – Rugby World Cup


Canada take on Wales during the 2007 World Cup.

Canada vs Wales

As the Real Canadian Sports Blog, I have been remiss in reporting to the world that Canada is participating in the International Rugby Union World Cup.  The competition is being held in New Zealand, home of the world-famous All-Blacks. Canada has performed well to date, defeating Tonga early last week 25-20, and losing to number 5 ranked France 46-19 on Sunday.  The score did not represent the true gist of the game as France pulled away late in the contest, taking late points from a visibly tiring Canadian squad.  This was Canada’s 2nd game in 4 days.  Canada is currently 4th in their group after 2 games, with the top 3 advancing to the next round.  Their next game is September 27 against Japan.

As a result of their showing last week, Canada advanced 3 spots in the world rankings to 11th.
