Ireland will play Canada in the 2015 Rugby World Cup after the Canadians booked their place the show piece event with a 40-20 aggregate qualification victory over the USA.

Canada, coached by New Zealander Kieran Crowley, claimed a 13-11 victory over the US at Toronto’s CNE grounds. 

That result, coming off the back of last week's first leg 27-9 win in South Carolina, sees the Canadians automatically qualify for the World Cup where they will face Ireland, France, Italy and a European qualifier.

The USA will now go forward to a last chance two-leg playoff with Uruguay.
