Let's Start At The Top
After watching Canada open the scoring within two minutes of the k.o. after a sixty meter scoot by Jessica Dovanne, evading some three or four English tacklers and convert.....the downstreaming left lots to be desired! Did manage to get "the lightning break" when players were forced to leave the field for their safety - a rather unique experience, after Canada had forged a 14 - 8 lead. This was the scoreline at the interval.
Canada had increased the gap to 20 - 8 with about twenty five minutes to play when England scored to get within seven points. The final score came from another long run from a Canadian speedster, Bianca Farella, Canada 27 England 13, a monumental victory. Evidently, the speed of the Sevens players was instrumental but also solid teamwork featured prominently. What a capper to a very successful U20, Sr 7's & XV's run of games, posting our National ladies within the top two or three nations. Un-bee-lieve-able, you beauties!!
