The Wallaroos have been plucky in their two Pacific Four Series defeats, but their tenacity counts for little - one point to be exact. They need to win their final game against Canada to have any hope of competing in the top tier of the inaugural WXV competition. Here's how to watch an Australia vs Canada live stream for the 2022 Pacific Four Series rugby wherever you are right now – with free coverage available around the world.
Australia's second-half fightback fell two points shy against the USA, and to add insult to injury, the Eagles have now leapfrogged them in the rankings too. It could become a treble-blow if they get something against the Black Ferns later today, and the Wallaroos lose to Canada, as the team that finishes bottom of the table falls into WXV 2.
Piper Duck, Layne Morgan and Cecilia Smith have been rewarded for the lively contributions off the bench, and Jay Tregonning has also called up Grace Kemp, whose aggressive running could shock some life into an ailing attack.
After their comfortable, Sophie de Goede-inspired victory over the USA, the Canucks' 0–28 obliteration at the hands of New Zealand has made this about pride for Olivia DeMerchant and her teammates. Canada are better than that, but on the positive side the omens are looking good for this one. Canada have won their previous four games against Australia by an average margin of 31 points.
