The Colonial Cup is an international rugby league football challenge match played between the United States national rugby league team and the Canada Wolverines. The inaugural match was played in September, 2010 at the Richardson Memorial Stadium at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario.[1] The match was won by the USA Tomahawks 22-16.[2]

In 2011, the Colonial Cup was expanded to a 'home and away' series. Each team won their home fixture; the USA won the first of the two games 18-2 with Canada securing their first win in the second match with an 18-16 win. USA won the series with an overall aggregate score of 34-20.[3] In 2012, the Cup was again contested over 2 games, with the USA Tomahawks winning both games. In 2013, the series has been expanded to a best 2 of 3 series.[4] In 2014, Canada won their first ever Colonial Cup trophy.[5]

Results[edit]

Note that in a year where each team wins an even number of games, the winner of the cup is decided by aggregate scores.
