Ireland recover from 14 point deficit to defeat Fiji in Canada 7s opener

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 trailed by 14-0 with four minutes left as Tima Ravisa and Talica Vodo both touched down for the Fijians.

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.

Amee Leigh Murphy Crowe secured Ireland’s second every win over Fiji after a patient build-up left her with an easy finish in the corner to cap off a remarkable fightback.

Olympic champions Australia, last season’s World Series winner, are up next for the Irish women.
