    1 of 4 2 of 4

      Vancouver rugby fans rejoiced yesterday with the news that BC Place will play host to the second ever Senior Men's Fifteens match at BC Place. Fans will get the chance to see perhaps the most renowned rugby club in the world (hint: they won't be the ones wearing the Maple Leaf), when Team Canada takes on the Maori All-Blacks on Friday, November 3. 

      In a press release, Rugby Canada indicated that it will be putting its best foot forward as the team attempts to rebound from a recent loss to the U.S. in a home-and-home series for the number one North American seed at the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan. The contest against the All-Blacks will be a good chance for Canada to prepare for a two-game series against Uruguay in January and February.

      The match against the Maori All Blacks will be one of four itnernational matches for Canada in November, as the rest of the details are to be released. 

      If the Rugby Sevens tournament at BC Place earlier this year was any indication, ticket sales should go quickly when they are released to the public at 10 a.m. today. The tickets start at $20.
