Sev­ens up, Aus­tralians rule Dubai

Sunday Territorian - - SPORT -

AUS­TRALIA is back to its win­ning ways – and in some style – af­ter tak­ing out the first leg of the World Se­ries.

The Aussies thrashed USA in the Cup fi­nal of the Dubai leg of the women’s rugby union sev­ens, run­ning in a mam­moth six tries in their 34-0 vic­tory.

Coach Tim Walsh was pleased to see the work in pre­sea­son come to­gether.

“To see them get bet­ter game upon game was just ex­cep­tional,” Walsh said.

Emma Tonegato made a tri­umphant re­turn from in­jury to be player of the fi­nal and Eva­nia Pelite was player of the tour­na­ment.

Prepa­ra­tions now be­gin for the Syd­ney Sev­ens at the end of Jan­uary.
