Day #2: 2011 World Rugby Classic Results

November 10, 2011

The second night of the 24th World Rugby Classic was a special one for Argentina and Canada as they upset South Africa and Australia.

Argentina 7 South Africa 5

In the first match of the evening saw more blood spilled than Try’s scored, Argentina got on the scoreboard first when Scrum Half Lucio Lopez Fleming went over for a Try and then Fly Half Federico Jordan Todeschini kicked the Conversion to give them a 7 – 0 lead.

After being held out in the first half South Africa came out hungry looking to get back into the match, Hooker Delarey du Preez pulled them within two points when he went over, however the Conversion was missed, both teams fought in the middle of the field and even when the referee signaled four minutes of injury time due to so many South African players having to leave the field bleeding, it could not prevent Argentina from pulling off the upset.

Australia 15 Canada 19

Canada came out inspired by Argentina’s performance, they looked to gain the early advantage and did so when Center Kyle Williams went over, however the Conversion was missed as Canada took a 5 – 0 lead. Minutes later that lead was doubled when Full Back Morgan Williams scored a Try and when Flanker Joey Alexis kicked the Conversion Canada took a 12 – 0 lead.

Ben Batgo pulled a Try back for Australia to make it 12 – 5, but the Conversion was missed, but Kol Henderickson scored another Try for Canada to extend their lead to 19 – 5, Nick Riely then went over for Australia for a Try, again the Conversion was missed and when Batgo scored his second Try of the game for Australia they pulled within four points, however Canada was able to hold off Australia and record the second upset win of the night.

  1. TV Critic says:

    The weather stopped me from attending last night so I stayed home and watched on TV. I must say the Fresh TV coverage is next to hopeless. Ads coming up on screen at crucial times when teams are about to score, commentary amateurish, scores not displayed enough - they should be on the screen in a small box to the left of the screen at all times. But worst of all, and embarrassing for Bermuda TV....they did not even spell Australia correctly when the scores did come up.
