VIDEO: Canada beats Team USA, clinches 2015 Rugby World Cup spot

Disaster averted. More like disaster calmly avoided, I guess.

Our Canucks have punched their ticket to the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England, beating Team USA by a score of 13-11 in a razor-thin win on Saturday in Toronto.

Canada went down early, but their defence was a wall and needed to be, and the Canucks fought their way back, finishing their summer with a 5-2 record and three straight victories against Team USA.

James Pritchard and Jason Marshall scored tries for the red and white. Team USA will now face Uruguay, and they'll need to fight their way into the 16-team tournament in Jolly Old England.
