Ireland enjoyed a 19-14 win with three late tries.

IRELAND WOMENS TEAM defeated Fiji 19-14 in the opening game of the Canada 7s today at the Westhills Stadium in Langford.

Ireland responded in style, posting the next 19 points to turn the game on its head.

Louise Galvin finished off a wonderful coast-to-coast move, before Katie Heffernan dived over for her first ever try in the HSBC Sevens Series.
