Wales bows out of Rugby World Cup quarter-final stage

Wales have bowed out of the Rugby World Cup at the quarter-final stage after another heavy defeat by defending champions New Zealand.

The Black Ferns were in a rampant mood and ran in nine tries in front of their adoring fans.

BBC says the Wales battled hard, but could only manage a Keira Bevan penalty.

The hosts face France in the semi-finals next Saturday at Eden Park, while Wales depart having registered just one victory, over Scotland.

Wing Portia Woodman scored two of New Zealand’s tries and earned a place in the record books after overtaking England’s Sue Day as the Rugby World Cup’s all-time leading try scorer.

Her sixth and seventh tries of this tournament took the 31-year-old to 20 overall.
