World Cup Qualifying: Country joins England in Pool C

The USA thrashed Canada 52-16 to qualify for the 2019 Rugby World Cup on Saturday in a triumphant finale for veteran captain Todd Clever.

The Americans ran in eight tries against an overpowered Canada side and will now advance directly to the pool stage of the finals in Japan as the top seed from the Americas zone.


The reward for the Eagles is a place in Pool C which will contain England, France and Argentina as well as a yet-to-be-determined qualifier from the Oceania region.

It marks the first time in World Cup history that the U.S. has qualified for the tournament ahead of Canada.

The Canadians will now face a two-leg playoff against Uruguay next year for a further tilt at qualification.
