Canada’s Men’s Sevens Team Secures Spot in Toulouse Semi Finals
Toulouse, France – The Canadian Men’s Sevens Team has secured a spot in the semi-finals of the 2019-2020 World Rugby Sevens Series in Toulouse, France. They have advanced to the semi-finals after a hard-fought victory over the United States in the quarter-finals. This win marks the team’s first semi-final appearance of the season.
Canada’s Men’s Sevens Team faced the United States in a quarter-final match at the Stade Ernest-Wallon in Toulouse. They entered the game as underdogs, as the United States had won the previous two meetings between the two sides in the series.
However, the Canadian team put up a strong performance, and were able to edge out the United States by a score of 14-12. Both teams displayed great defensive structures, and it was an incredibly tight game from start to finish.
Canada’s tries were scored by Theo Sauder and Justin Douglas, with Nate Hirayama adding the crucial conversions that secured the win.
With their victory over the United States, Canada’s Men’s Sevens Team has secured a spot in the semi-finals of the Toulouse leg of the World Rugby Sevens Series. They will face Fiji in the semi-finals, who are the defending champions of the Toulouse tournament.
If Canada manages to beat Fiji, they will then face the winner of the other semi-final match between South Africa and Australia in the tournament final.
Canada’s Sevens Season so Far
The Toulouse tournament marks the fifth leg of the 2019-2020 World Rugby Sevens Series. So far, Canada has had a mixed season, with some strong performances and some disappointing losses.
Their best performance of the season came in the opening leg of the series in Dubai, where they finished in third place. Since then, they have yet to make it to the semi-finals of any tournament until now in Toulouse.
Canada’s Men’s Sevens Team have shown that they can compete with the best in the series, and their place in the semi-finals of the Toulouse tournament is a testament to that. Their victory over the United States was hard-fought and well-deserved, and they will be looking to carry that momentum into their match against Fiji.
The team will be hoping to build on their strong performance in Toulouse as they look ahead to the final leg of the series in London in May.
