Match Commentary

81'45-12 End of second half
80'Winiata's kick ahead rolls into touch and that is that. The four-time champions are into another final, but they have been made to work for it. The U.S. faded as the game went on but for an hour in Belfast they pushed the Black Ferns hard. Portia Woodman will again take the plaudits following her four-try performance.
80'Gray is penalised as she loses her bearings at a ruck, and the Black Ferns have one last chance to attack.
