Chile Defeat Canada to Keep Rugby World Cup Dreams Alive

Chile have defeated Canada in Valparaiso to keep their Rugby World Cup dreams alive.

It is the first time that Canada will not feature at the Rugby World Cup. It was the first time that Chile have beaten Canada in the 15 a side match. After the visit to Canada finished with a decisive penalty on full time, Chile needed to return with a victory. Chile won 33-24 at home after losing 22-21 in the dying moments in Canada.

The second leg was played in the Estadio Elias Figueroa and the legendary defender passed on his congratulations online.

The road to 2023 will see them face the USA over two matches next year. Uruguay booked their return to the Cup with a victory over the USA. A loss in that two game match up may not be the end of the road though, with the loser to enter a four team qualifying tournament.

The Rugby World Cup will be held in France. The performance of the South American nations has seen commentators impressed with the improvements and concerned with the decline of the North American teams.
