The third Nations Cup tournament was played at Appleby College and Chatham-Kent in Ontario, Canada, in August 2011 following on from an Under-20 version which took place in California a month before. The tournaments included teams representing USA, South Africa, England and Canada. England retained both titles.

For USA, Canada and South Africa these were the first internationals they had played since the World Cup. Although the final results in both tournaments were as expected, in the senior event England trailed to both USA and Canada before turning the games round - in the case of the USA game from the final play of the game after 7 minutes of added injury time. Canada lead 5-3 at half time in the group game before conceding four second half tries.

Despite (or possibly because) of their impressive start against, USA struggled in later group games - the effect of having to play four games in ten days, sometimes in temperatures of over 30°C having an effect. However, all teams used the group phase of tournament to try out different formations - only in the finals did most teams select their strongest available starting XVs.
