Headlines 22/07/2018

The Black Ferns Sevens have defended their World Cup title after beating France 29-0 in the final in San Francisco.

New Zealand were the first to score through Michaela Blyde after a sensational run down the left wing before Portia Woodman touched down on the other side in similar fashion.

Tyla Nathan-Wong would add another try right before halftime to give New Zealand a 15 -0 lead at the break.

France's defence proved sterner in the second half but Blyde would cross for her second of the final after a break from Woodman.

Blyde rounded off an impressive performance for New Zealand with her third try right on the hooter.

It's their second women's Rugby Sevens World Cup title after taking out the honours in 2013.
