England to face New Zealand in final

Shujaa then lost 14-24 to lowly Ireland in their Challenge Cup quarter-finals, an outcome that has left Kenyans fuming.

It will be a retained double men's and women's World Cup if New Zealand win, or England could end a 25-year wait. They will next play Scotland, who completed a remarkable comeback to defeat Kenya 31-26 having trailed 26-0. From a midfield scrum, Lucy Mulhall made a great run and pass, which found Higgins who went over for a 10-5 lead at half time.

Spain defeated Fiji 19-12 in the opening match of the tournament to set up a Championship quarterfinal with Australia, the Olympic and HSBC World Rugby Women's Sevens series champions getting their campaign up and running against debutantes Papua New Guinea.

Speaking afterwards, Conroy was in humble enough form, saying that the team were happy to put the recent result against South Africa in the rear view mirror, and noted that he was happy to "put a show on" for the travelling fans.
