Rugby Union:World Cup 2023 Qualifier
Canada will hope to put their long wait for a win behind them as they take on the United States in a Rugby World Cup qualifier. The Canadians have not won since 2016 with 3 of their failures during that period coming against their opponents in this clash.
The USA defeated them twice while they were held to a draw on 1 occasion back in 2017 but their 2 wins since then were comfortable ones and they are likely to be too good for the hosts here. The host have also lost the few “big-names” that they had in the past and will be fielding a relatively inexperienced side.
The Canadian national team – once Rugby World Cup quarter-finalists in the amateur era – has sunk to 22nd in the world – six places below the Eagles, who have not been beaten in the last 12 derby matches.
