NZ Take Out Underdogs In Women’s 7s Series

New Zealand claimed the fourth round of the World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series in Canada after defeating Russia in the Cup final on Sunday, 29-10.

Playing in their first women’s series final, Russia were brave but easily defeated as prolific scorers Kayla McAlister and Portia Woodman put them to the sword in Westhills Stadium, the home of Rugby Canada.

It now means New Zealand are well on their way to securing their place at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro next year, with mathematical confimation highly likely at the next round in London.

The Kiwis beat the Fijiana in the quarter-final 26 – 5.

In the plate semi-final, Canada thumped Fiji 45 – 0.

NZ leads the World Rugby Women’s 7s Series with 80 points, Canada 58 and Australia 56. Fiji is in 8th place with 24 points ahead of Brazil, Spain, China and South Africa.
