Canada is getting ready to host Scotland for a highly-anticipated men’s international rugby test match.
On Saturday, June 9, our national team will take on Scotland at Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium with the goal of earning world ranking points.
A good run placed the Scots fifth in the world, however, the team lost to Ireland 28-8 in the Six Nations match back in March. Canada’s men’s rugby team is currently ranked in 21st but that could all change with a win on June 9.
Scotland edged Canada four years ago in Toronto, but the score was close, 19-17. Canada has emerged as the winning team over Scotland twice before at home – in Vancouver (26-23) back in 2002, and in Saint John (24-19) in 1991.
The upcoming match is the perfect reason to wear your red and show off your Canadian pride as rugby takes over the Commonwealth Stadium.
Whether you’re a die-hard rugby fan or a first-timer you can round up your crew for what’s set to be an action-packed event, to show off your Canadian (or Scottish) pride.
