World Cup Round-Up: Wonderful weekend for Bears women at World Cup

Six Bears were in action for Wales in their opening win against Scotland, whilst two Bears featured in England’s triumph over Fiji.

A Keira Bevan penalty in the 84th-minute handed Wales a victory over Scotland in Pool A.

Alisha Butchers and Kayleigh Powell scores first-half tries, whilst fly-half Elinor Snowsill was rewarded player of the match after her outstanding performance (landed a penalty and conversion).

Wales had a 10-point lead at the break. Scotland than levelled the scores in the 78th-minute. They then however gave away a penalty 30-metres out, which Bevan landed in a gripping contest in Whangarei.

The previous day England were in action at Eden Park in Pool C against Fiji.

England started slowly in the first-half and only led by 10 points at the break. Abbie Ward crashed over from close range to be one of the Red Roses 14-try-scorers in a record breaking 84-19 victory.

The Red Roses will be back in action against France on Saturday, October 16th and Wales will take on tournament hosts New Zealand on Sunday, October 17th.

If you've been inspired by watching the Rugby World Cup, come down for a Weekend of Women's sport at Ashton Gate as we take on Wasps on Saturday, October 19th and Bristol City face Birmingham City the following day (Sunday, October 20th).
