Canada Rugby World Cup 2011 Betting Odds

Canada are one of the minnows of World Rugby and will head to New Zealand in 2011 with very little chance of qualifying for the last eight, they are regulars at the World Cup now but they lack the strength in depth of the bigger and more traditional rugby playing nations. The Canadians have been drawn in Pool A alongside the likes of New Zealand, France and Tonga in games they will be looking to be competitive in while their game against Japan will be the one they have targeted to win.

Canada Rugby World Cup 2011 Betting Odds

the greatest moment in the history of Canadian Rugby was their appearance in the Quarter-Finals of the Rugby World Cup in 1991, they will however struggle to repeat that anytime soon with the other nations so much stronger. They have proven to be the best team in North America as they showed when defeating the United States in a play-off to reach the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

The Canadians do have one or two players who ply their trade in the big leagues with Matt Evans playing for the Newport Gwent Dragons and Kevin Tkachuk who plays for the Glasgow Warriors. They will need to rely on their experienced players if they are to have any chance at all but as the latest betting suggests they have very little chance of making an impression on the tournament.
