It has been a long journey for the RWC2021 Teams, Players and Organisers with the tournament being postponed by a year. Many thought it would not go ahead but we head into the final week as England and New Zealand prepare to battle it out for the title of World Champion.
For the Red Roses, Sarah Hunter captains the side at number eight with outside centre Emily Scarratt vice-captain, Hannah Botterman and Helena Rowland miss the game due to injury. The Black Ferns have made one injury enforced change with 2017 World Cup winner Charmaine McMenamin replacing Liana Mikaele-Tu’u who sustained a thumb injury in the semi-final victory.
The sides play on Saturday at a sold out Eden Park.
