The win propelled them into the International Tournament as Canada's representative team.  The tournament was held in Toronto and was attended by the world's best hockey clubs.  Unfortunately, the Tigers were eliminated by England's Wembley Lions in the round-robin elimination tournament.  Notwithstanding the defeat, players and Sudburians were exceedingly proud of the team's success in making it to a world competition.
