Wales Women v Canada Live: Kick-off time, TV channel update and scores


The Wales Women wrap up their fall campaign against Canada on Sunday night, but it is their toughest test yet.

The Canadians head to Cardiff Arms Park (5pm kick-off, live on BBC Two Wales) ranked third in the world but on their first tour in two years and after a 51-12 loss to England last Sunday.

Wales, which has improved a lot this month since the April Six Nations, will look for a third straight win after wins against Japan (23-5) and South Africa (29- 19).

The match also marks the players’ final audition to impress the coaches with the goal of being one of 25 players who were offered a contract in December. Ten professional offers and 15 semi-professional offers are on the table for the first time in WRU history. You can read more here.
