Playing three thirty minute games, Rugby Canada’s mens team would control from the opening kick off, going up 34-7 in the first 30 minutes of play with an aggressive nose for the ball. BC would answer with two late trys but the effort would not be enough as Canada would keep the foot on the pedal and roll over BC with a solid performance and win.
