Canada looking for upset against All Blacks in their final Pool match - Rugby World Cup News
Canada is seeking a rare victory against the Number One side in the world, All Blacks, when they meet on October 2 in Westpac Stadium. The North Americans have secured six points in the three matches played so far with one victory and a draw against Japan.
The Canadian side is looking forward for a big victory against the Rugby World Cup hosts All Blacks to keep their dreams alive to pass the first round hurdle. The head coach of Canada, Kieran Crowley, along with several players expressed their hopes of producing
a triumph against New Zealand on September 28.
Canada is currently placed on the third position at the points tables behind the All Blacks and France. If they clinch a dream victory against the All Blacks and a rusty Namibia thump the French side there will be a chance for Canada to play the next stage
of the global tournament.
Canadian coach Crowley admitted the fact that the All Blacks are a tough side to compete against but his side was in good spirits for the particular clash. The coach added that the squad will need greater efforts overcome the All Blacks on their home soil.
New Zealand has got an excellent record of victories before their home crowd and has lost only 37 matches in their long history of 107 years.
Kieran Crowley argued that, “The All Blacks are an extremely difficult team and we have, I think, only two practices until we play them so it's a bit of a short turnaround. It would have been nice if we had a little bit longer to work on some stuff, but
that's just the nature of the draw.”
Canadian wing, Phil MacKenzie, also expressed his hopes for the upcoming encounter of the RWC and said that, “We are still in the tournament if Tonga can beat France and we can get a bonus point against the All Blacks. We want to play against the best team
in the world. It will only improve our play. Our main focus is to play 80 minutes of good rugby.”
Meanwhile, All Blacks’ assistant coach, Owen Franks, also expected a tough match when his side takes on Canada.
