The Wallaroos hopes of figuring in the finals of the Womens Rugby World Cup are in tatters after being flogged 48 – 0 by France.

After Australia’s opening round loss to Ireland, the team needed to bounce back strongly against the Le Bleus but were never in the hunt.

Attacking rugby has been to the fore in the tournament so far and the French kept that up in their win, running in eight unanswered tries with winger Shannon Izar (pictured) the star with a hattrick.
