Canada's new rugby song

They got a winner. Not a bad ditty if Irish sea shanties are your thing - you can listen to it here - but crossing my fingers it doesn't become an official anthem.

Via Rugby Canada:

Guinness, the official beer and major sponsor of Rugby Canada, received over 100 submissions in its nation-wide 'We Need a Song' contest, from Vancouver, Regina, London and St. John's and many spots in between.

The winning song, from Clint Harris of Murray Harbour, PEI, proclaims: "When we don our nations colours / In the quest for rugby's crown / We'll be brothers all."


"Our thanks go out to everyone who submitted a song. It's excellent that we actually have an official song now, to take with us to the World Cup. We've got a song we can sing and know that the fans are behind us," said Canada Rugby World cup squad member Derek Daypuck.
