Canada open their Rugby World Cup Pool B campaign against Italy on Thursday (11:45 am UAE time).

The Canadians’ first game comes six days after the tournament started, while Italy are the group leaders, thanks to the bonus point they secured in their 47-22 win over Namibia on Sunday.

Elsewhere, England will be looking to make it two wins from as many matches when they face USA in Pool C (2:45 pm UAE time).

Head coach Eddie Jones has made 10 changes from the team that beat Tonga at the weekend.
