NZ will play Ireland on Saturday at 2 PM at what promises to be the best of the three US pool matches. The announcer said they are predicting a sellout. (Tonight's attendance was about 3,600, which was a significant proportion of Buck Shaw Stadium. I expect the place might hold 5,000 in a pinch.) So Dave Gallaher and I had better get there early so we can get tickets.
All six teams in the tournament will go on to Edmonton for the second round, with the winners of each pool playing for the Churchill Cup, the 2nd place teams contesting for the Plate, and the 3rd place teams (probably the USA and Canada; however, if Canada upset England Saxons on Saturday, the USA will play England) playing the consolation match for the Bowl.
In the Canada pool, Scotland A squeezed out a win against Canada by a score of 15-10 and will play the winner of the NZ-Ireland A match for the Cup.
Update, Thursday 08:00: Corrected the score, put in a link to a story about the rout, and listed the results of the other pool match.
