Blitzboks Dominant in Australia As Real Test Awaits

New Zealand and England are currently playing their semifinal now at Robina Stadium.

Finalists at Hong Kong's World Series round a week ago, Kenya had pace to burn in running up a 5-0 lead.

New Zealand even had an opportunity to put the game completely beyond doubt when Fiji's Sevuloni Mocenecagi was given a yellow card for an early tackle on Sam Dickson.

England hit back after Abigail Brown drove through a gap in the Kiwi defensive line, but Kiwi Michaela Blyde scored her side's second before the break.

Kelly Brazier and Gayle Broughton showed fantastic footwork to step through the Kenyan defence for their tries after Woodman gave New Zealand their fast start.

Scotland, though, made it extremely hard for the Blitzboks and Neil Powell's men took a narrow 7-0 lead into half time thanks to a try from Rosko Specman.

The jubilant scenes which followed England's semi-final win over Jamaica were repeated and exceeded as Helen Housby netted in the final second for Tracey Neville's side to win the most astonishing of contests.

They will play either Scotland or Wales for fifth place later on Sunday, while the Australian women's team meet Canada in a semi-final.

Rosko Specman opened the scoring for South Africa with just over two minutes left in the first half.
