It's the type of all round play that would have most international coaches sweating and Evans was no different.
"When we looked at the schedule, we identified these two games against Canada as a potential banana skin," said Evans.
In order for them to overcome Canada the Black Ferns would need to be more dominating in the opening periods. Their sluggish starts against Australia and Samoa were down to some poor passing accuracy and that too would need to improve.
Tauranga Domain hosts its second match of the series.
Weather conditions are expected to be damp and miserable as high winds and heavy rain were forecasted to tear through the region on Tuesday morning.
Play gets underway at 2.30pm.
