Canada coach Kieran Crowley was bursting with pride after his mainly amateur team beat Tonga at the Rugby World Cup but almost as unhappy at how little time they have to prepare for their next game.
Canada overturned a seven-point deficit to beat Tonga 25-20 winners at Whangarei's Okara Park in their first Pool A match on Wednesday .
The former All Black said the players were some of the best professionals he's ever worked with, "they just don't get paid. They'll run through a brick wall for you," he said.
Canada must now pick themselves up from the hugely physical encounter for their second Pool A match, against France, on Sunday.
Crowley was unhappy at how little time they have to prepare for the game. "It makes me laugh when tier two countries have four-day turnarounds and all tier one countries have seven-day turnarounds and eight-day turnarounds," he said.
