25 August 2010

Following on from another incredibily successful day of Women's Rugby World Cup action at Surrey Sports Park, things are still very tight in all three pools.

South Africa 15 Wales 10

South Africa got their first win of the tournament as they beat Wales 15-10 in the first game of the day. Tries from No. 8 Namhia Siyolo and wing Charmaine Kayser gave South Africa a 10-0 lead at the breakk, leaving them seemingly in control of the game.

A gallant Wales fought back well in the second half and answered a third South African try with a Non Evans penalty and a good try from substitute back Elen Evans. Wales had the chance to take a possible lead in the dying seconds of the game but a knock-on under the posts was the last play of the game and the score finished 15-10.

New Zealand 32 Australia 5

New Zealand continued their winning form, running in six tries to Australia’s one in this much anticipated Pool A game. The defending champions put the first points on the board with a try by hooker Fiao’o Fa’amausili inside the first quarter.

Australia were unable to cope with the wind blowing against them in the first half and conceded three more tries. The second half showed more promise from the Wallaroos as they answered New Zealand winger Victoria Blackledge’s opening try with one of their own from prop Lindsay Morgan but the Black Ferns came back again and finished the game 32-5.

Ireland 22 USA 12

Ireland scored their first bonus point of the tournament, beating USA 22-12 in one of the most exciting games of the tournament so far. Tries from fullback Niamh Briggs and scrum half Tania Rosser and a brace from No. 8 Joy Neville were enough to secure them a good win over a very physical USA side.

The Eagles scored one a piece in each of the halves and mounted a massive challenge against the girls in green in the final quarter but it wasn’t enough to get the win they were after.

England 82 Kazakhstan 0

England marched to an emphatic 82-0, 12 try victory over Kazakhstan with both Fiona Pocock and Charlotte Barras grabbing well earned hat-tricks.

France 17 Scotland 7

Scotland lost a second consecutive game in their pool against a strong French side that beat them 17-7. France put their first two tries on the board within the first ten minutes and it looked unlikely that Scotland would recover.

Just at the break France earned a third try and the score went to 17-0. Scotland showed a different side in the second half and with the wind behind them they started to settle more into the game. Lucy Millard touched down under the posts just seconds after the whistle blew but it was to be Scotland’s only score of the day. The French played some excellent running but were unable to score again and the game ended 17-7.

Canada 26 Sweden 10

Canada proved too strong for the underdogs Sweden in Pool C. Mandy Marchak opened the scoresheet with her third try in this world cup and this was followed in the first half by a try from Ashley Patzer and a brace from Heather Moyse.

They led Sweden 26-10 at the break after a penalty by Swedish captain Ulrika Anderson-Hall and a try from Charlotta Westin-Vines, converted by Anderson-Hall.  Patzer and Moyse each scored again in the second half taking the lead to 40-10 but despite a valiant Swedish effort they were unable to get any more scores under their belts and Canada took the win.
