But that wasn't really Ireland A or Scotland A, more like B or C. Ireland's second string side have been in Aregentina playing a 2 Test series (they lost both) while their top side is back home with their feet up. Same with England, who sent their second team to get mauled by South Africa, and the NZ Maori who have all their good players with the All-Blacks right now for their international season. No offense, but those teams Canada scored 23 and 20 points against were duds.

Canada will get owned by Australia and Wales obviously, and Fiji and Japan will be tough matches. Its going to be a pretty tall order to win two games.
