The Colonial Cup is an international rugby league football challenge match played between the USA Tomahawks and the Canada Wolverines. The inaugural match was played in September, 2010 at the Richardson Memorial Stadium in Kingston, Ontario.[1] The match was won by the USA Tomahawks 20 -16.[2]

In 2011, the Colonial Cup was expanded to a 'home and away' series. Each team won their home fixture, but the Tomahawks were awarded the trophy due to aggregate score. 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 2011 Colonial Cup with an overall aggregate score of 34-20. [3]


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