GB beats Canada to book final spot

Great Britain had to fight hard to beat host Canada by 22-12 in the first cup semifinal of the Edmonton 7s this morning and book its place in the final.

Ross McCann scored the only try of the first half as Great Britain led 5-0 at the break.

Winger Andrew Coe scored for the hosts early in the second half and a successful conversion by Brenning Prevost gave them the lead.

Great Britain replied with three tries through Luke Treharne, Robbie Fergusson and Tom Bowen  to seal the match and a late try by Prevost was not enough for the Canadians.

Earlier in the quarterfinals, Great Britain overcame USA 21-19 while Canada escpaed with a 14-12 win over Ireland.
