Harries hat-trick as Wales win

Wales brought the curtain down on their Women's Rugby World Cup campaign with an impressive 35-3 victory over South Africa in Marcoussis.

Defeats in their opening two fixtures meant the Welsh were unable to advance from Pool C, but they at least avoided finishing bottom of the group with a bonus-point victory which included a hat-trick of tries for Sioned Harries.

The teams exchanged early penalties before Wales took a stranglehold on proceedings, with Harries scoring their opening try shortly before the interval and adding two more in the second half.

Jenny Davies also dotted down for the winners while Robyn Wilkins kicked 12 points to leave Wales above South Africa in the group standings.
