Rugby News Canada coming to Milton Keynes

Canada have been confirmed as France's 2015 Rugby World Cup opponents at stadiumMK.

Canada overcame the US Eagles in their back-to-back matches played over the past fortnight. After a comfortable 27-9 victory in Charleston, South Carolina, the Canucks held on to win 13-11 on home soil the following weekend for an aggregate 40-20 result.

The wins mean that Canada have confirmed their place as the first non-European side in Pool D, and has set up a repeat match-up of the 2011 pool encounter in Napier, a game which included five tries and over 60 points.

stadiumMK is hosting three matches in October 2015, with France v Canada (October 1st) being followed by Samoa v Asia 1 (October 3rd) and Oceana 1 v Play-Off Winner (October 6th).
