Canada defeated United States…in Rugby

by Rachel Baker on August 25, 2013

The United States lost 13-11 in a two-game, total-points series – meaning, Canada is going to be competing in the Rugby World Cup in 2015. Canada has competed in the rugby World Cup every year since 1987.

There were joyous scenes amidst Toronto’s CNE grounds on Saturday evening, and it wasn’t just for those who had successfully navigated the 1,100-foot zipline without losing their lunch.

Canada downed the United States and qualified for the rugby World Cup at the first time of asking, and can now spend the next two years preparing for a much bigger showcase than the Canadian National Exhibition when the world’s third biggest sporting event descends on England, the country that invented the sport of rugby union.
