Opening up the scoring was Kyle Baillie catching the inside ball to touch down for a try. Baillie was followed up by a Kainoa Lloyd try, his first of three in the match—all scored within the first half. Ciaran Hearn was good for all conversions in the first and added a penalty to put Canada up 31-0 at the break.
Canada got off to a flying start in the second half, capitalizing off Chile’s error at kick off which lead to a try by Pat Parfey.
At the 52nd minute, winger Andrew Coe received a great ball from Gordon McRorie—who subbed into the game for Hearn—to add on another try for Canada. Coe followed that up shortly after with his second try of the match after several dominate Canadian phases.
With a McRorie penalty kick, Canada finished the game victorious 56-0.
Hearn’s impressive kicking came in a milestone match, as he won his 66th cap and is now tied for third most capped player in Canadian rugby history.
With his strong second-half effort, Coe was awarded HSBC Canada’s Sevens Man of the Match.
