Canada loses 23-18 to Italy

Canada played a great game and had their chances but could not finish a couple of tries with about 10 minutes to go, which would have given them control of the outcome. After that Italy had plenty of possession and the penalty kick with seven minutes to go pretty well sealed it.

It was the most points Canada had scored against a top nation since a 32-20 loss to France in 1999.

The game ended with Italy camped five yards out from the Canada try line. After three collapsed scrums, the referee awarded the Italians a penalty, but the kicker scuffed it off to the side and full time was called.
