  • +1

Defending champions New Zealand, Australia and USA recorded three wins from three on day one of the HSBC France Women’s Sevens in Biarritz on Saturday.


Australia, who have reached and lost every final in series history played in France, will face Spain in the opening Cup quarter-final at 11:00 local time (GMT+2) on Sunday after they overcame Kitakyushu champions Canada 27-14 in the Pool B decider.
That pits Canada into a Cup quarter-final with hosts France, after Les Bleues were beaten 19-7 by USA in the battle for top spot in Pool C, while the Women’s Sevens Eagles will meet Russia in the day’s second quarter-final.

New Zealand, the Pool A winners, will play China in the remaining quarter-final after the Asian side snatched a 15-14 win over Fiji to not only win their first pool match of the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series 2019, but also keep alive their hopes of retaining their core status for next season.

In the Challenge Trophy semi-finals, England will take on Ireland before Scotland face Fiji.


Day two of the action gets underway at the Stade Aguiléra at 11:00 local time (GMT +2) on Sunday 16 June with Australia versus Spain in the first Cup quarter-final.WHERE TO WATCH >>
