Canada Women’s Rugby World Cup 2022 matches

Women’s Rugby World Cup Canada 2022

Canada has participated in every Women’s Rugby World Cup and its record is consistent, if not impressive.

They never finished sixth, but made only one final, ending in defeating England 21-9 in 2014.

The last tournament in 2017 summed up Canada’s World Cup history. They were too strong for swimming competitors Wales and Hong Kong but suffered a defeat from New Zealand, which prevented them from reaching the semi-finals.

They duly won two consolation matches to conclude with four wins out of five matches, but that defeat to the Black Ferns narrowed them to fifth.

With the re-presentation of the women’s quarter-finalsAt this year’s World Cup, Canada must reach the knockout stages of the main tournament. In fact, they should reach the semi-finals – after all, they are fourth in the world.

They will likely top their group, which means they will avoid the other group winners (most likely New Zealand, England or France) in the quarter-finals. They beat group rival USA 36-5 during the Pacific Four Series in June and beat Italy, another Group B member, 34-24 in late July – the first international on Canadian soil since 2015.

The opening match of the World Cup with Japan was interesting, with former Canadian prostitute Leslie Mackenzie coaching her opponents, but North America must win that match as well.

Canada is the first team to name its team for the Rugby World Cup, with coach Kevin Rowett selecting 32 players who will travel to New Zealand at the end of August.

Sophie de Guidi’s No. 8 will lead the team in her first World Cup, but there’s team experience, too. Olivia Demerchant, Brianna Miller, Laura Russell, Tyson Bokeboom, Karen Paquin, Elisa Allary, Brittany Cassel, Dalia Menin, Alexandra Tessier have all participated in the previous World Cup Finals.

Canadian women’s rugby is not a profitable venture, which means that many team members have full-time jobs and will make financial sacrifices to play in the tournament.

“It was a very difficult selection process, and all the players made it very difficult to reduce our squad to a pool of 32 players,” said Royt, who took over as Sandro Fiorino’s coach earlier this year.

“They have all been dedicated and put in a lot of hard work to get to this point. However, the real hard work begins now as we head to New Zealand with desire and belief that we can compete for the Rugby World Cup, a first in Canada’s history.”
