The World Rugby Classic opening day of 2017 produced 79 points, with one game being a blowout, while the other came down to a missed Penalty Attempt.
Argentina 57 Canada 5
The opener saw Argentina blow away their opponents Canada 57 – 5, Maximiliano Nannini and Nicolas Bruzzone both score 2 Try’s each, with Julio Brolese, Julio Fabias Cabello, Jose Basile, Gonzalo Tiesi and Roman Miralles all adding a Try each, with Federico Serra kicking 6 Conversions, Ben Grant would score the lone Try for Canada.
France 10 Classic Lions 7
With time running out and down by 3 Classic Lions kicker Ceri Sweeney attempted a long-range kick to try and draw level against France, but the kick was short, he would have a look at another try, but the team decided something different. This tight contest had all sorts of drama, the match was delayed by 11 minutes as an injured player was taken away via ambulance, and later in the match it was an all-out brawl near the touch line.
Patrick Caumont would score the Try for France with Anthony Lagardere kicking a Conversion and a Penalty, while Richard Carter scored the Try for the Classic Lions and Sweeney would connect with the Conversion.
