England Seal Semi-Final Place In Rugby World Cup

In the match between England and USA, the squad of England, scored seven tries and this was their most stunning performances to date, the score of seven tries squeeze the life out of the squads of USA in Dublin and England, clinch the victory for the consecutive third time at the Women’s World Cup (WWC) and move into the semi-finals.


Out of their seven tries, four came from Coach Simon Middleton, who has been unenthusiastic to show his full hand. It was their severest challenge so far; however, they managed to cruise through it at any rate for the first hour.

The squad for USA finished powerfully, but the dominant pack of the England and the Katy Mclean’s game management was too much for the USA to beat them in the game.

From the very beginning of the match, England start dominating USA, they dominated the first half to secure a place in the semi-finals and also a top spot in the Pool B.  And before the USA reacted, it was too late for them.

In the tournament, this is for the first time that they fell short of just 50 points, but their prowess of shutting down the back three of the USA until the match was won already will gratify Middleton greatly, and also the improved kicking of Emily Scarratt at goal. Overall, it was a fine retort to 48-5 win of New Zealand over Canada over the same pitch little time back that ruled the finalists from 2014 out of the last four.

After the game, in an interview, Middleton said, “We would want to finish the game before and better than how we did, however, we were outstanding in the first half absolutely, our thoughts and its execution were clear.”
