Black Ferns confident ahead of Cup final

Around 150m saw the game around the world.

Women's rugby might never have had a better foundation from which to grow.

Five tries in 30 minutes either side of half-time, including a hattrick to prop Toka Natua, proved the difference as the Kiwi women overcame a 12-point deficit and a yellow card to break English hearts for the fourth time in a Cup final.

So Scarratt urged the sports administrators to up the ante this time, saying it was time for actions to replace words. The game is being aired live on primetime, free-to-air TV and radio, the usual Saturday night entertainment being replaced by women's rugby.

"We had to fight every inch of the way, but I'm absolutely thrilled".

WELLINGTON has put its hand up to welcome the world champion Black Ferns rugby team home with a celebratory street parade.

"It's not something we're totally in control of - that's the people behind the desks doing the posh jobs".

New Zealand, who this week overtook England as the number one ranked side in the world, overcame a stubborn U.S. side 45-12 in their semi-final as they ran in seven tries.


Now this England squad will splinter.

The Rugby Football Union's emphasis will now switch from 15s to sevens over the next two years.

Emily Scarratt may now be turning her talents to sevens, but after her World Cup heartache in Belfast she vowed to return to the longer form before she calls it a day. Ireland failed to fulfil expectations at their own World Cup and it's little surprise that coach Tom Tierney stood down after this defeat.

Hina had special praise for Auckland-based Gisborne woman Charmaine McMenamin for the part she played in a supreme forward performance against a powerhouse England pack. "The new league format will help to increase the quality of players and then you want to be playing in tournaments like this all the time, and on stages like this all the time". 'But things like that are completely out of our control. "We fought for everything and you can't fault the girls' effort out there tonight and throughout this competition", said Hunter.

'Everyone knew where they stood.

"A huge amount of positives have come out of this tournament, but ultimately we are hugely disappointed because we came here to win it and we haven't".

It is a bitter blow for England, particularly given the funding and coverage the XVs programme has experienced this year, but it was a fantastic game of rugby.
