RLWC 2017 Qualifer Jamaica v Canada

Recommended Posts

Wasn't expecting Jamaica not winning any match. Happy for the Canadians, whose team has beaten the USA several time but has never play RLWC. 

 

The annual "Colonial Cup" is an event I'd like to go, spectators seems to enjoy this game and Canade deserve a plause for how they promote the game. 

 

USA v Canada is gonna be winner takes all, although the Americans can afford to draw. 

 

From a World Cup point of view, the USA would maybe be able to field a stronger team than the Canadiens, due to all the heritage players who play their professional football in Australia. But Canada would definitly deserve its place, because of all the work they did these years. 

 

About Jamaica, given a lot of their players are UK based, why don't they play more test match in Europe against the likes of Ireland, Scotland ecc.? We need more test footy, at all levels.

The Canadians are getting the short turnaround. The USA had the long turnaround in this and the previous WC qualifiers. if I were involved with Canada I'd be getting in quick and offer to host the 2021 WC Americas qualifiers and get themselves the long turnaround.

With the closeness of this qualifying competition, the fact that the Cook Islands came close to qualifying earlier this year, and the likely competitive European Qualifiers next Autumn, it's crazy that the WC is 14 nations only. Two more wouldn't dilute the quality given that the draw is likely to be structured to avoid blow-outs in the group stage.

So Number16 wants to add 2 extra teams to a 14 team comp... Very convenient.
