Canada is officially done at the Rugby World Cup. Yesterday they suffered a pretty big thrashing from the All Blacks. Now that wasn’t surprise and to be honest they really didn’t play too badly. Yeah the score was pretty lopsided (79-15), but for the first 5 min Canada held a 3-point lead ahaha. Overall the All Blacks really didn’t play that well. They seemed to throw some pretty bad passes and had a hard time holding on to the ball. They were lucky they were playing Canada, as against one of the better teams it would have cost them the game.
I am impressed with Canadian rugby! Canada played well this tournament and is making great strides in the rugby world. With a win vs Tonga, a close match to France, a draw to Japan and of course the loss to the All Blacks they have nothing to hang there heads about… they did well. Good job boys!
Adam Kleeberger my favourite Canadian of the tournament and not just because of the mountain man beard(damn i wish i could grown a beard like that) but also because of his hard hitting play. That guy was all over the place, tossing his body around with no care in the world. Near the end of the 2nd half he had a head on head tackle with one of the All Blacks and I swear he was out cold for a few seconds. They way he hit the ground, face first just looked like we was knocked out for a second or two. Both players were a bit shook up and I believe Kleeberger had a bit of a spew on the field… now that is going HARD! In the end he walked off, so he is one tough mofo!
If you haven’t heard the All Blacks have lost one of their best players. Dan Carter; all-star fly-half, kiwi favourite and underwear model was out of the Rugby World Cup. While practicing he tore his groin complete meaning it would be a minimum of 10-12 weeks before he could play again. This is a HUGE loss for the All Blacks. Think loosing of it as loosing Sydney Crosby at the 2010 Olympics. I feel terrible for him. He has worked his entire career for this moment and it is now lost. That is sport I suppose, you take the good and the bad.
