Wales suffer Australia defeat

Wales saw their Women's World Cup semi-final hopes ended by an emphatic defeat against Australia in Marcoussis.

Wales, emphatically beaten by hosts France in their opening game, were no match for an Australian side that ran out 25-3 victors.

Sharni Williams and Tricia Brown scored tries as Australia built a 17-0 interval lead, and Brown then added a second touchdown, with Wales replying through a solitary Robyn Wilkins penalty.

Wales wind up their campaign against South Africa next Saturday, while Australia face a group decider against France.
