That match was awful. The referee teams needs to be restricted from international level following remedial training. I'm angry. With a better a ref team control isn't lost and it remains a safer environment for the players whom although barely acquainted seemed to be out for blood.

Lasike getting a red there, no. It's a Yellow on both, he didn't stamp on his head he stamped on his back. He Also forcefully pushed Osadszuk three times and Osadszuk refused to let go of his leg. He's lucky he didn't get kicked in the face.

With a better ref team do we win, don't think so but it would have been a more competitive match for damn sure.

If the competition moves to September it won't happen anyway.

Canada after the first fifteen minutes have been comically inept, tons of knock ons, missed kicks, laughable stuff.

When does it become routine for a team consistently lose games they in theory should win?

As the commentators have pointed out, even Canada's body language screams no confidence, it's like they expect to lose. Without the overseas pro's to steady the ship this team melts down in the slightest stretch of bad play.

Everyone should be as lucky as Kingsley Jones. Terrible at his job everywhere he goes and still finds employment.

He and Parfrey were made for each other, how he still gets caps is beyond me.

There are better Canadian players that played last night in the MLR games, why they aren't being selected is just outrageous.

As much as I enjoy seeing Brazil improve, I'm baffled a country with a fraction of the rugby history and resources has been able to improved so drastically whilst a nation like Canada, with all players and history at its disposal, has fallen so quickly. It's almost like there's a changing of the guard in the Americas.

Some of it is supposedly Kingsley playing nice with the MLR clubs. Some of it is incompetence.

Why didn't they take the points? Brain dead stuff.

Edit: That's it game over, Canada needed a score, not enough time for two scores now.

Percillier has been one of the few bright spots since he came, him, Hearn and Lloyd have been about the only Canadian players to look acceptable today.

Everything you said is wrong, but I just want to say that the score was 21-0 when the red card.

I mean... A changing of the guard has already happened. Ten years ago, Canada was usually better than the US, and much better than Uruguay. Now we can't beat either of them, and there isn't much sign of improvement.

I was hoping stringing some wins together in November would increase the teams confidence, but it seems like it hasn't helped.

The US overtaking Canada is one thing, but dropping behind Uruguay and on the verge of dropping behind Brazil is another thing entire. The Americas needs a strong Canadian rugby presence.

And it's also important for Chile to recover and get on the path Brazil is following.

Congrats Brazil, always more and more surprising

Sorry if I say a silly thing: is this the first time they defeat a World Cup team?

They looked better against Uruguay. Still too small however, the players need to increase their size and fitness levels.

A good win by Brazil playing to their strengths, it helps to have a good scrum and reliable kicker to punish the mistakes, Canada seem to be lacking that too.

For Brazil they must be targeting that elusive win against Uruguay. For Canada well, at least there's a worse team in the comp, hopefully the overseas pros can limit the damage at the RWC.

FLO is trash. I went to watch the game on delay because I missed it live and the idiots posted the score on the front page....then the service cut out multiple times and for some reason kept cutting to the players warming up. Terrible service.

No, they sent a letter to ESPN to or something to assert their domestic rights over the broadcast.
