England march on at Women’s Rugby World Cup

England marched to an emphatic 82-0, 12 try victory over Kazakhstan on Tuesday in the second round of the Women’s Rugby World Cup pool games at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford but another former champion, the United States, was stunned by Ireland 22-12 on Tuesday.

New Zealand, the three-time defending champion, overpowered Australia 32-5 and England blasted Kazakhstan 82-0 and has yet to concede a point after two pool matches.

Ireland exploited the sinbinning of U.S. prop Farrah Douglas to score three tries bridging halftime. The result kept alive Ireland hopes of a semifinal berth, while dealing a severe blow to the Americans’, the inaugural 1991 champions.

South Africa beat Wales 15-10 and France beat Scotland 17-7. Canada beat Sweden 40-10.

England and Worcester back Danielle Waterman said:”I’m really pleased with the game. I came off the bench, but the girls started well and we all carried that on. I have to give all credit to Kazakhstan.

“They hit us hard, they disrupted our ball and they played to the end. It was a great result for England and now I’m just looking forward to the next pool game against USA.

“Playing at scrum half brought back a few memories from way back when, when I started playing rugby! It was good fun to play there this evening and it was a great experience with LaToya at ten and Amy Turner at 12. Having three nines on the pitch was awesome!
