In their first outing of their UK tour the Canadian team struggled to come to terms with the pace and power of a young Gloucester team eager to impress on their big night at Kingsholm Stadium.
Right winger Charlie Scott kicked the game off with a bang after 5 minutes scoring a well worked try on the touchline which was quickly followed up by a great individual score from number 8 Tom Lushington.
The hosts continued to dominate proceedings from here on in with their well organised defence and excellent game management by fly half Tiff Eden proving to be the key difference between the teams.
Fullback Julian Osbourne added a further try before the break. Picking up the ball just inside his own half from a pre called strike move, Osbourne rounded two defenders before stepping inside the fullback and outstripping the cover defence to score beneath the posts.
Canada came back strongly from the restart and forced a penalty which they converted to make the half time score 19 - 3.
After the break Gloucester continued where they left off, playing with width and applying pressure when the Canadians had the ball.
This pressure paid off when centre Dan Spencer-Tonks capped off a good performance by intercepting a pass 10 metres out to score.
Gloucester kept the pressure on and added tries from fly half Eden, lock Lewis Ludlow and replacement fullback Tom Hage.
Charlie Scott, who had started proceedings with a well finished try, also saved another piece of individual brilliance for the last Gloucester try.
Receiving the ball in his own 22 and spotting a flat defence in front of him, Scott put a long kick down the touch line, outstripped the defence and collected the ball with one hand at full pace to score in the corner.
Canada, although well beaten never gave up and in fact battled back to have the last word on the night scoring a great try in the dying minutes to bring the final score to 48 - 10.
After the game Billy Clark, Junior Academy Manager, said:
'We're happy with how the guys played today. The really pleasing thing is to see how the team have taken on board the lessons frm the Northampton and Saracens games and implemented those learnings here tonight.
"We appreciate the Canadian lads have only come together this week for the first time, but we still had to go out and perform which is exactly what we did.
"Our defensive organisation has improved beyond measure and a number of guys played exceptionally well individually.
"The challenge for them now is to continue to develop - this is very much the bottom rung of the ladder for these guys if they have aspirations of playing at the highest standard.
"It's a great experience and one that should inspire all the players in our Academy to work even harder to climb the ladder.
"I can't thank the supporters who turned up tonight enough, we really wanted to test the team under pressure and there is no greater pressure than playing in front of nearly a thousand people at Kingsholm for the first time."
