About the Team

Canada first played international rugby in 1932 when an all-Canada squad played a match against Japan. Since then the sport has continued to grow and Canada has become a major player on the international rugby scene. Canada Rugby Union is classified as one of eight tier two rugby nations by the International Rugby Board and are universally recognized as the premiere club in North America. They are regular participants in the Rugby World Cup as well as the Pacific Nations Cup. Canada Rugby Union joined the IRB Pacific Nations Cup in 2013 where they play matches against Tonga, the United States, Japan, and Fiji. The squad is currently ranked 14th in the world by the International Rugby Board, but has earned victories over highly ranked teams in recent years including Wales, Scotland, Italy, and France. Canada has already earned a spot in the 2015 Rugby World Cup after having defeated the United States in August of 2013. Now the squad will continue to play matches against many of the best teams in the world in order to prepare for the rigors of World Cup play, hoping to prepare themselves for their deepest run in the tournament to date.


The Experience

There are few events as exciting as seeing a national rugby team compete at home against another country. The men on the team have trained their whole lives to be named to the squad and now that they finally have the opportunity to represent their country and play with and against the best rugby players in the world they are determined not to let either their country or their teammates down. Rugby is the one of the most popular sports in the world and gives birth to the most fervent and dedicated fans. One step into a stadium when the local national team is playing and you will understand what all of the fuss is about. Unrelenting action, otherworldly athleticism, stunning runs and passes, and mind blowing, bone jarring hits will have you seeing exactly why rugby has won the hearts of millions of die hard fans all over the world. You will be chanting and singing along and barely even need to use your seat as move after move will have you jumping up and cheering for the home country. Perhaps at no other time will you have felt so proudly to cheer for Canada and felt patriotism as deeply as when you are in the stadium with thousands of fellow Canadians cheering on the Canada Rugby Union.


The International Rugby Board

Headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, the International Rugby Board boasts 100 full fledged members along with 18 associate members. The group was founded in 1886 but did not use the name IRB until 1998. Every four years the International Rugby Board organizes the Rigby World Cup, but it also hosts several other popular international tournaments including the IRB Sevens World Series, the Junior World Championships, and the Pacific Nations Cup. The members are divided among six regional associations, representing each of the six participating continents.


Trivia

The emblem for the International Rugby Board is a maple leaf, and the team is known by two nicknames, the Maple Leafs and the Canucks. James Pritchard holds the top two points totals for points in a match, the top spot with 36 points against the United States in 2006, and the second spot with 29 points against Barbados.
