Magali Harvey scores Try of the Tournament contender vs France

A great tournament, I was cheering for Ireland & Canada from the pools, a great step forward for our sport. TG4 covered all games ( except final) in Ireland so good to see some TV coverage..

So get behind you local club/province etc and cheer on the Women at all ages.grades.

USA Eagles come from behind to beat Canada for first time in eight attempts

Some nice pace from both sides, good for both sides to narrow the gap.

Jebb Sinclair controversially red carded for 'leading with the elbow'

As a refereee the key around the decision should always be INTENT & MATERIAL IMPACT.

Intent: Did the Canadian player intentionally lead/ swing his elbow, in contact ? No, you can clearly see the 'elbow' is no more than an awkward brushoff of the scottish tackler.

Material impact: The Scottish player was already steamrolled by his own poor tackling technique. The 'elbow' did nothing to impact the situation. As a ref I would have said play on.

Saracens fly through to Cup Final after dominant performance vs Clermont

Shane Williams had a long distinguished career, on maybe 1 or 2 occasions he did a show boat, Ashton conversely probably does an Ash Splash every time he goes to bed, I admire his speed and agility but sorry I dont care for him as a rugby player, he comes across as an oaf. Give me players with humility any time.

Saracens fly through to Cup Final after dominant performance vs Clermont

Wrong call ( penalty try) by Owens, in that it was not clear that try would have been scored ( note the ball was al lover the place and close to the line)
