Chile knock Canada out of contention for the RWC

Post by TigerFeetSteve » Sat Oct 09, 2021 8:47 pm

Just watched the 2nd half of Chile knocking Canada out of the rugby world cup, they'll face a final match out of the loser of USA & Uruguay, but massive result for them! Won it comfortably too..

What's more Paul Tait, who knows his stuff on South American rugby says their entire 23 are Chilean players no residency qualified guys in there

Chile will now play USA for the Americas 2 qualification spot as the US were beaten to the Americas 1 spot by Uruguay who thrashed the USA today (the USA seemed asleep for the start of the 2nd half where Uruguay ran in 3 quick tries).

Winner of Chile USA will be in England's group in the world cup.

Noting even the loser of that qualification match will have a repechage game too try and get to the world cup

O Canada! O Canada!

Obviously well done to Chile, it's a massive achievement for them et al, but with the growth of MLR, Canada should really be doing better.

Well done to perennial under achiever Kingsley Jones, who has clearly further achieved the accolade of taking Canada backwards!

2nd world cup in a three where Kingsley Jones has taken a qualifier to missing out. Did the same with Russia before 2015.
Goooooodeeeeeyyyyy!

I read a tweet that Canada has a lot of good younger players and so will be better in the coming years. But we'll see.
