UNITED STATES IN CANADA FACE OFF
A berth in the 2019 Japan Rugby World Cup is at stake tomorrow when the United States play host to Canada in a winner-take-all showdown in San Diego, California. It is the second match in a two-leg qualifying series that produced a 28-28 draw at last weekend’s opener in Hamilton. “If we’re going to do better, we’ve got to be more clinical,” Canada coach Mark Anscombe said. “If you want to win these games you’ve got to make better decisions than what we did.” The winner will book a 2019 berth in Japan while the loser faces another qualifying series against a South American side. Canada, who have played in every Rugby World Cup since the event began in 1987, are 38-17 with two drawn matches against the US.
