Wales Finish Tenth In World Cup.

Wales Finish Tenth In World Cup.

The most-capped player in Women’s Rugby, Lisa Burgess, retired from International Rugby after playing in a 17-14 loss to Saoa in the Women’s world Cup.
Though Wales finished a place higher than they did four years ago, it was disappointing both to the team and to 38-years-old Burgess in particular.
Outside half Awen Thomas started it off well with three penalty goals, but Samoa, down 9-5 at the interval, led
17-9 until injury time when flanker Avril Dent scored an unconverted try.
Team: K Jones (Caernarfon); C Flowers (Clifton), L Rickard (Sudbury), M Berry (Wasps, capt), S Jones (Waterloo); A Thomas (Carmarthen), R Owens (Clifton); S Mason (UWIC), J Kift (Clifton), C Edwards (UWIC), C Donovan (Saracens), L Burgess (Clifton), K Wilson (Waterloo), P Minto (Clifton), A Dent (Clifton).
Replacements: A Phillips (Saracens), K Lenaghan (Clifton), J Morgan (Clifton), S Grainger (Wasps), C Walkley (Aberystwyth), K Mayze (Tycroes), R Wilmott (Torfaen).
