Match report

Jamaica eased clear of the Canada in the second half, two second half tries from Wakefield’s Super League star Ben Jones-Bishop, playing at full back, the turning point in their 38-8 triumph.

Leeds Rhinos’ Ashton Golding also crossed, the Wolverines pegging the score back to 12-8 at the start of the second period when Ruairi McGoff claimed their second try. 

Reggae Warriors head coach Romeo Monteith commented: “Canada threw everything at us and I'm proud of our boys who stuck to the task and didn't panic. 

“Our defence won us the game, the turning point was when we kept them out on four consecutive sets just before halftime. 

“The second half was even more pleasing as our attack really got into motion and the finishes were really good.

Looking ahead to the decider, Monteith added: “There were a lot of sore bodies but the lads are really looking forward to the final field session.

“It will be a great game for the fans, both teams are evenly matched and it will come down to who makes the least errors to claim that World Cup spot.”

Chile and Canada meet in a rankings match (kick off 1.30pm). According to Wolverines head coach Ben Fleming: “The effort by the boys (against Jamaica) was fantastic, they were all absolutely devastated afterwards that their World Cup dream was over.

“On top of a true captain’s performance from Rhys Jacks, fullback Jordan Drew impressed on debut. I have some tough decisions to make for Saturday’s game against Chile.   

“Team Manager, Paul Buchanan, has pulled together a varied itinerary and team spirit is high.  Now everyone’s looking forward to getting on the pitch.”

Both games will be live-streamed on the national federation’s and Toronto Wolfpack’s Facebook sites. 

USA and Jamaica will meet at the Hodges Stadium, University of North Florida, Jacksonville on Saturday (kick off time 4pm local) to decide the eleventh nation to qualify for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup in England.
