The Lions recorded a historic 34-57 victory over Canada at TD Place in Ottawa. Santiago Santos signed a perfect first inning to win for the first time against the Canucks, which they agreed with a score of 13-40. Spain had 6 tests in the first forty minutes: Del Hoyo, Bale, Tully, Mingelón, Thomas Muñilla and Alex Alonso to consolidate their victory. In the second half, Spain set three new records: Ordas, Jorba, Alonso – a double for a man from Valladolid – to score a landslide victory. Spain demonstrated its level in the World Cup with its first victory over the Canucks. The Lions are wrapping up a good sporting season – we’re not getting into the executive part – and we’re facing a new period of renewal like every National Rugby game.
Spain was a roller in the first half. From the first minute, he dominated the game under the leadership of the outstanding Manu Ordas. A dominant front line and decisive breaker found the gaps to penalize the opponent with points. The case was opened by Del Hoyo and reached a climax. Ordás was right with the sticks and put 0-7. Canada will open its sign taking advantage of the indiscipline on our land thanks to the foot of the opening of Nelson. Spain responded with two new trademarks. Bale took advantage of a break from Jimeno and soon after Tawley peaked in play from the lead to make it 3-21 after Ordas’ turnover when it had barely taken 15 minutes. Another foul by Los Leones allowed Nelson to add to the foot but Spain hit again with trials. A tense pass from Ordás by Minguillón makes it 6-26 midway through the first half.
Looks like Kanucks wanted to step up and were able to score thanks to Stevens’ prostitute. Nelson was right about the sticks. Canada took the opportunity to add again after the Los Lions offense. Our three hits cost us 13 points. But Spain was well planted on the artificial turf of TD Place, and before the break they were scoring two scores again. Thomas Monella and Alex Alonso put in a 13-40 goal that reached into the first half.
After the start of the second half, Epsana hit again with the Ordas mark. However, Canada almost immediately responded with a new mark for the third Ramble to reduce it to 20-45 with almost 5 minutes of play left. But with every hit from the Canadians, Spain responded with play and points. The beating was working and only Canucks’ infractions prevented Del Hoyo from scoring again. However, they were unable to stop the open match and Gorba crowned with a new offensive move to achieve the eighth Spanish conquest in Ottawa. Ordás didn’t hit the sticks but Los Leones ruled 20-50.
The party disintegrated and chaos began to reign. In the midst of the chaos, Spain hit a race for Titi Futeu that took the oval from the Spanish Brands Zone to the Canadian 22. Alex Alonso then came back to stand after dumping Yorba to make it 20-57 after Ordas’ kick. When we still have a quarter of an hour. Canada will be able to shape the scoreboard with a new branding of the Lloyd Pavilion. Wood passed the kick after hitting both sticks to make it 27-57. Spain fell into discipline and would finish the match with two fewer men due to Bittor Aboitiz and newcomer Piñeiro without Ben. The Canucks capitalized on their superiority and Jack McRogers closed the gap to the final 34-57 after a Bowd kick.
