Cup Quarter Finals:

Fiji 12 – 14 Ireland

Fiji got off to a quick start as they recorded the first points through TALEI WILSON try but the Irish turned up the heat and responded with two tries of their own (EVE HIGGINS & AMEE LEIGH MURPHY CROWE) leaving everything to play for in the last half of the game.

ANA MARIA NAIMASI scored a 2nd try for Fiji as they looked for a late scare but the Irish manage to hold onto the win and they are our first semi-finalist.

Great Britain 7 – 0 Canada

The 2nd quarter final got off to a wild start as these tow teams meant business. It was a tight contested affair as both team threw bodies around the park.

Great Britain managed to break through after Canada got a yellow card, ELLIE BOATMAN scores as GB outnumbers the Canadians on attack.

They went into the half time with a 7point lead and it looked like this one could go down to the wire.

Canada throws the kitchen sink at Great Britain’s defense but GB holds strong and they see this one threw.


New Zealand 14 – Australia 24

The big quarter final was contested between familiar foe, having faced each other on 28 occasions in knockouts.


Australia scored twice in the first half (FAITH NATHAN & MADISON ASHBY) but the two red cards for dangerous tackles will be the what everyone remembers from that half.

MICHAELA BLYDE got New Zealand on the scoreboard early in the 2nd half in what could be described as 6 a side match.

MICHAELA BLYDE scored a controversial try as from the replay there could clearly be seen that the call came off her forearm when it bounced forward.

Australia tried to verbally contest the Refs decision but they soon realised that they were gonna have to go the extra mile with their play. Play they did as CHARLOTTE CASLICK and DOMINIQUE DU TOIT went over for tries at the end.


Australia goes through to the semis in what can only be explained as a bizarre match.

France 5 – 21 USA

In similar fashion to the previous quarter final matches that have been played these two teams came out swinging.

France scored first  through CARLA NEISEN in the 2nd minute. The USA responded with two tries of their own (SAMMY SULLIVAN  & ALEV KELTER ) in the first half as they started to find some momentum.

The USA scored another try Kelter finished off her brace and from there the Eagles saw the game out with an impressive defensive effort.

USA is off to the semi-finals tomorrow where they will face the hosts.



Brazil 21 vs 17  Japan

Japan got off to a solid start, scoring in the 1st minute through YUME HIRANO who found some space. From there it was a stop-start affair as both teams struggled with discipline at the rucks.

Japan scored another try before the end of the half.

Brazil fought back hard to come in close with 2 minutes left on the and it was game on with everything left to play for.

The Brazilian team finishes off in style as they steal the victory from the Japanese in a last second try.

South Africa 12 –  7 Spain

The 9th place semi final was closely contested between these two nations and South Africa only managed to get on the scoreboard at the end of the first half.

The Spanish women got the first score of the 2nd half  to take the lead  through a try by AMAIA ERBINA.

NADINE ROOS made it a short lived lead for the Spanish as she scored a try that secured the game for South Africa who will go through to the 9th place final

Round 3:

Brazil 12 – 10 Spain

The Brazilians and Spanish got day two on the way in a match that saw both teams looking for their first win of the day.

Brazil who were one win away from their 50th all-time HSBC SVNS victory got on the scoreboard first through their flyer THALIA COSTA who ran in a 80m try.

The Costa twins proved too difficult to stop for the Spanish as THALITA DA SILVA COSTA  finished off another 80m try for Brazil at the cusp of half time.

The Spanish responded early in the 2nd half by putting Brazil under pressure with some blitz defense and it paid of as JUANA STELLA got over in the corner after a spilled ball was kicked forward.

PAULA REQUENA scored another for the Spanish but the conversion kick was missed and that handed Brazil the win.


France 31 – 12 Fiji

Two of the 4 “unbeaten Day One teams” faced each other in the 2nd match of the day in what promised to be an exhilarating encounter.

The Flying Fijians got on the scoreboard first with YOUNIS BESE finding some space wide but the Spanish went into half time with two tries up, CHLOÉ PELLE scoring the 2nd try.

The French started looking a bit more comfortable in the 2nd half and scored 3 most tries with  Fiji’s talisman REAPI ULUNISAU recording one for her team.

The French showed their by going for that final try after the 14 minutes ended.


Ireland 26 – 7 Japan

The Irish had a solid start to game as they managed to set up a couple of phases before BEIBHINN PARSONS went in for the first one.

Ireland scored their 2nd try in the half in similar fashion before Japan got a breakaway try as HONOKA TSUTSUMI showed a clean pair of heels.

It was game on in the 2nd half after MEGAN BURNS was sent off with a yellow card as the Irish struggled with discipline but the defensive effort from the Irish went up a notch.

After keeping Japan out, BEIBHINN PARSONS scored her hat trick try by beating a couple of players on the left wing.

Japan struggled to find their way back into the game as handling errors stopped their momentum.

The Irish scored one more as the siren sound for full time.

New Zealand 24 – 7 United States

MICHAELA BLYDE  opened the scoring for the Black Ferns as they turned defense into attack after winning a turnover ball.

USA then got in close but Blyde made a try saving tackle and then won a penalty on the ground the New Zealand them then went all the way through MANAIA NUKU.

STACEY WAAKA finished off a 3rd unanswered try for New Zealand on the halfway mark.

Waaka picked up where she left off in the first half and scored a 2nd try early in the second half.

USA fought back hard but New Zealand refused to give it away cheaply, JAZ GRAY managed to break what looked like an impenetrable defense by the Black Ferns to score one for the USA.

Great Britain 12 – 14 South Africa

Great Britain came into this one with their tails up after their emphatic win over the hosts in their last match and their confidence got rewarded with an early try by JASMINE JOYCE.

The South Africans refused to go down without a fight and a break by SIMAMKELE NAMBA saw them go up in front at half time.

GB fought back in the 2nd half and scored a try by ELLIE BOATMAN however the South African ladies had a different idea of how things would play out as MARIA TSHIREMBA scores a breakaway try.

The Blitzboks have done it, they beat GB!

Australia 31 – 14 Canada

Australia dominated the opening encounters and showed their intent early on as they looked to make up for that loss in their previous outing.

They managed to score a couple in the first half and looked to run away with in the 2nd half but Canada stayed in the fight scoring their 2nd try with 3 minutes left on the clock through CHLOE DANIELS.
