CONGRATULATIONS Black Fern. New Zealand
New Zealand are about to lift the trophy, but both sides can hold their heads high after a breathless final. It had looked set to be a shootout right down to the wire, but the Black Ferns found extra gears to dominate the second half.
It was also a fitting contest for primetime TV, with 11 tries scored and the title in the balance until New Zealand slowly pulled clear. Perhaps the two sides’ respective rugby unions might see fit to pay these exceptional players for their time – no switching to sevens, no semi-professionalism. It only seems fair. That’s all from me, but stick around for a full report. Bye!
