Canada win Super Cup
May 29, 2005

Canada avenged their loss in last year's final and won the Toshiba Super Cup on Sunday, beating Japan 15-10.

Employing a tight no-nonsense rolling maul game, the Canadians scored tries through debutant Brodie Henderson (58th minute) and Dean van Camp (77th) to go with a penalty and conversion from Derek Daypuck.

Japan responded with a drop goal from Kyohei Morita - that had given them the lead in the 19th minute - and a last minute try from Katoni Otukolo, converted by Morita.

"We played our hearts out," said Canadian captain Mark Lawson. "It was very physical and tough right to the dying seconds and we will really celebrate tonight."

Earlier Mike Hercus had become the leading points scorer in U.S. Eagles history as he scored a try in their 28-22 win over Romania in the game for third-place.

David Fee and Mike Palefau also touched down for the U.S. and Francois Viljoen added three penalties and two conversions.

Romania's points came from tries by Ioan Teodorescu and George Oprisor and four penalties from the boot of Dan Dumbrava.
