Wales vs Canada Predictions


Despite having a host of players away with the B+I Lions, Wales have still selected a very strong side. They are the Six Nations champions and should have little problem disposing of Canada. I am tipping Wales to cover the -40 handicap.

  • Wales are the 2021 Six Nations Champions.
  • Wales have won their 4 of their last 5 matches.
  • Canada have lost their last 10 matches against Wales.
  • Canada have lost 11 of their last 12 international matches.
  • Canada have lost their last 3 matches by 40+ points.

Head to Head


Wales have won 11 of their 12 Test matches against Canada. Their only defeat came in 1993. Last time the two faced off Wales won 32-23 in Toronto.

Wales Form


Wales come into this match knowing they should win comfortably. After a horror showing in 2020, Wales made one of the sporting comebacks of the year in 2021 to win the Six Nations.

The Dragons won four of their five matches during the competition, claiming the Grand Slam on the way. Fortune was certainly on their side as they played two matches (Ireland and Scotland) against 14 men.

The loss of top players to the B+I Lions should not deter Wayne Pivac’s side too much on Saturday.

Wales Injuries & Team News


Fullback Leigh Halfpenny will win his 100th Test cap on Saturday.

Wayne Pivac has named wing Tom Rogers and lock Ben Carter to make their starting debuts on the weekend. Fellow uncapped players Taine Basham, Gareth Thomas and Ben Thomas will feature off the bench.

Canada Form


When rugby turned professional in the 1990s Canada was the emerging force in the game. Since then the game has stagnated in the country as can be seen by their 11 defeats in their last 12 international matches.

Their only win came against Chile in February 2019, not a feat Canada will talk about for too long. They have not played international rugby since the 2019 Rugby World Cup ended.

During the World Cup Canada lost all three matches. They suffered a 48-7 loss to Italy, a 63-0 defeat to New Zealand and a 66-7 loss at the hands of South Africa.

Canada Injuries & Team News


Canada have yet to announce their team. Their entire coaching staff is however Welsh so should have good knowledge of the opposition.
