New Zealand join France in World Cup semi-finals

The shock was expected, it will take place. After the 39-3 qualification of the French team against Italy earlier in the day, New Zealand reached the semi-finals of the Women’s World Cup. The Black Ferns logically dominated Wales (55-3), Saturday in Whangarei, to join the last four of “their” World Cup.

Already imperial in the group stage (three successes, +125 points difference), the reigning world champions have never trembled against the Welsh, scoring nine tries, including two from winger Portia Woodman, who has become in the same time the top scorer in the history of the men’s and women’s World Cups (20 tries).

The semi-final between France and New Zealand will take place next Saturday (7:30 a.m. in France), at Eden Park in Auckland, while England (against Australia) and Canada (against the United) will try to hold their rank to join the last four on Sunday.
