澳大利亞54-4新西蘭。布拉德-唐納德的球隊贏得了創紀錄的第三屆女子橄欖球聯盟世界盃冠軍

澳大利亞在老特拉福德舉行的女足世界盃上表現出色,痛擊新西蘭,取得了創紀錄的第三次勝利。

傑西卡-塞爾吉斯第五分鐘的嘗試為這場一邊倒的比賽定下了基調,朱莉婭-羅賓遜和伊莎貝爾-凱利在休息前兩次過關,衛冕冠軍建立了20-0的半場領先。

新西蘭隊在連續第六次參加決賽時充滿了樂觀,他們在小組賽階段輸給澳大利亞隊時表現出色。

然而,他們在最大的舞台上被由阿里-布里金肖激勵的澳大利亞隊無情地掃地出門。

經驗豐富的布里金肖參與了澳大利亞前五次進攻中的四次,並以幾次出色的突破、精闢的傳球和一系列螺旋式踢球複製了她在2017年比賽中的表現。

雖然曼徹斯特的觀眾支持明顯萎靡不振的新西蘭隊,伴隨着 "哦 "和 "啊 "的聲音,他們罕見地突破了澳大利亞隊的防線,但在重新開始後的12分鐘內,他們發起顯著反擊的任何希望都被撲滅了。

艾瑪-托內加托在接到布里金肖的內線傳球後,飛快地越過兩名防守隊員,塞爾吉斯的勢頭讓她翻身而起,完成了她本場比賽的第二次嘗試。

雖然世界上領先的兩個國家之間的前兩場決賽一直很接近,兩隊之間的差距不超過10分,但Tarryn Aiken的嘗試使布拉德-唐納德的球隊的記分牌一直在轉動。

儘管當天最響亮的歡呼聲是留給新西蘭隊的一次掃蕩,看到麥迪遜-巴特利在角落裡俯衝,但肯尼迪-謝林頓的兩次嘗試和埃瓦尼亞-佩利特的最後努力確保澳大利亞隊以一場響亮的勝利結束比賽,並在決賽中獲得第二大勝利。


Australia produced a superb display to thrash New Zealand as they claimed a record-equalling third Women's World Cup triumph at Old Trafford.

Jessica Sergis' fifth-minute try set the tone for a one-sided affair, with Julia Robinson and Isabelle Kelly then twice crossing before the break as the defending champions established a 20-0 half-time lead.

New Zealand arrived at their sixth consecutive final with plenty of optimism, having acquitted themselves well in a slender group-stage loss to Australia.

However, they were simply swept aside on the biggest stage of all by a ruthlessly efficient Australia, inspired by Ali Brigginshaw.

The vastly experienced Brigginshaw had a hand in four of Australia's first five tries and replicated her player of the match performance from 2017 with several excellent breaks, incisive passes and a series of spiralling kicks.

While the Manchester crowd got behind the visibly dispirited New Zealand side, with 'oohs' and 'aahs' accompanying rare breaks through the Australian line, any hopes they had of mounting a remarkable fightback were extinguished within 12 minutes of the restart.

Emma Tonegato darted past two defenders after collecting an inside pass from Brigginshaw and Sergis' momentum then saw her roll over for her second try of the match.

While the previous two finals between the world's leading two nations had been close affairs, with no more than 10 points separating the teams, Tarryn Aiken's try kept the scoreboard ticking over for Brad Donald's side.

Although the loudest cheer of the day was reserved for a sweeping New Zealand move that saw Madison Bartlett dive over in the corner, two tries from Kennedy Cherrington and Evania Pelite's late effort ensured Australia concluded the match with a resounding victory and the second biggest ever winning margin in a final.
