Hong Kong Women's Sevens Challenge Cup

It was a great day of rugby.  There were obvious differences in talent between the top teams (England, Australia, Canada, USA) and the bottom ranked teams but the second tier teams put up strong showings with the USA having to fight hard for their victory against Spain, who later won over the Netherlands and eventually won the plate from China in Hong Kong Stadium.  The Canadian women had previously dispatched England 27-7 in Dubai in December but on Sunday during the cup semifinals both North American teams looked out of their depth against England and Australia.  The cup final between Australia and England was very close and could have been won by either team but eventually the clock ran out to give the win to England 15-10.
