|Women’s Rugby World Cup 2014 Semi-Finalists Decided in Paris|
A day of high-drama has decided the four teams that will compete in the semi-finals of Women’s Rugby World Cup 2014 on August 13 in Paris.
Ireland will play in their first ever Women’s Rugby World Cup semi-final when they face their rivals England, while hosts France face Canada in Stade Jean Bouin, the home of Stade Francais.
Les Bleues beat a strong Australia side 17-3 in the last match of the day to finish top of Pool C, while Ireland beat Kazakhstan to top pool B.
For the first time in the tournament’s history, New Zealand will not play any part in the semi-finals, as a 13-13 draw between England and Canada was enough to eliminate the Black Ferns from the final four. England topped pool A with Canada qualifying for the semi-finals as best runners-up.
Meanwhile tickets for the semi-final and finals at Stade Jean Bouin are selling very quickly and fans are encouraged to book early.
“There has been extraordinary interest in this competition since it kicked off and it has captured the public’s imagination both here in France and around the world,” said IRB Tournament Director Philippe Bourdarias.
“I urge all fans to get their tickets for the semi-finals and final as soon as possible to avoid disappointment, as there are some classic matches in store at Stade Jean Bouin.”
