USA to play Canada in two Tests

The United States will play Canada in two Test matches in the autumn, in preparation for their World Cup qualifying campaign.

Both games will be played at the Philadelphia Fight’s home ground, A. A. Garthwaite Stadium,  Conshohocken, PA on September 20 and October 18.

The two test matches against Canada, plus the final match of the Qualifiers between USA and Canada, will be part of the three-game series for the Colonial Cup.

This continues the tradition between these two countries dating back to 2010, with Canada winning the trophy for the first time last year, defeating the USA 52 – 14.

“This is a great honor, not just for those selected, but for every player who took part in the combines,” USARL director of coaching Peter Illfield.

“It’s the first known Rugby League team from the USA that has been subject to a selection process, of which each player participated in, from which the best available players have been chosen.”
