Rugby In Canada

The Canadian national rugby union team represent Canada in international rugby union. They are governed by Rugby Canada, and play in red and black. Canada compete in competitions such as the Churchill Cup and the Rugby World Cup. The sheer size of Canada means that talent is scattered across the country making the job of coaches and selectors very difficult. The climate is also unfavourable for playing rugby union for much of the year in most parts of the country.

Canadian Rugby

Canada have been playing international rugby since the early 1930s, making their debut in 1932 against Japan. Canada have competed at every World Cup since the tournament was first staged in 1987. Canada achieved thus far their best result at the World Cup in 1991, where they reached the quarter-finals.

The national team currently does not have a permanent home stadium and as such play their matches at various locations across the country. BMO Field in Toronto, Ontario has been proposed as the national team's home stadium, even though it cannot provide a suitable rugby climate year-round. However, rumours have the national team playing out of the proposed Whitecaps Waterfront Stadium in Vancouver, British Columbia when it is completed. This would place the national rugby stadium in the country's main rugby stronghold of British Columbia, and in a city whose winter climate is considerably milder than that of most of the rest of Canada.
