BEACH BEST 15 Possibles????? You make the choice and ADD others if you wish! Balmy Beach Rugby Best 15 Ballot sheet Please print! Canada Wins! – Canada victorious in first leg of three in World Cup repechage. A 65-19 decisive victory over Kenya. First time in a while that Canadian squad has looked productive and confidant for almost an entire 80 minutes! Early on the Kenyans showed great pace and strength and pushed Can to continue to play better. Our lads responded positively and it was great to see. Pretty experienced side for us for a change and lets hope it continues next Sat vs Germany. We need to win all three to be sure of qualifiing. Lucas Rumball and Jamie McKenzie both contributed to the effort as subs in the second half.
