Black Ferns secure back-to-back win

The New Zealand Black Ferns secured a consecutive title with a commanding 35-19 victory over France in the Vancouver 7s.

Portia Woodman-Wickliffe’s outstanding speed and talent were on full display as she scored the first try for the Black Ferns.

Despite France’s Anne-Cécile Ciofani leveling the score with a powerful run, New Zealand’s cohesion and strategic play by Michaela Blyde’s decisive break and Jorja Miller’s try, kept them ahead.

Woodman-Wickliffe’s brilliance was on full display as she completed a hat-trick, further extending the Black Ferns’ lead.

France’s efforts to rally in the second half were briefly ignited by an early try, but New Zealand’s superiority was undeniable, with Woodman-Wickliffe sealing the victory.

Although Chloé Pelle managed a late try for France, it wasn’t enough to challenge New Zealand’s dominance.

Australia is at the top of the Women’s series standings with 72 points, with New Zealand closely behind at 66 points.
