Three in a Row for Black Ferns

NZ’s Black Ferns have won their third successive women’s rugby World Cup, beating traditional rivals England 25-17 in the final. The tight defensive match was a virtual replay of the 2002 final against England, which NZ won 19-9. Veteran Ferns captain Farah Palmer, 33, announced her retirement after the match, in a fitting end to 11 years playing for NZ. “I have no idea what I’ll do,” she told Stuff. “I’d still like to stay involved in rugby. I think my strengths are in promoting and developing the women’s game. Maybe I can work my way through to the NZ Rugby Union or the International Rugby Board. I have big dreams in that direction.”
