The Group B leaders played France and Australia, with the Tricolors having already booked their ticket to the quarter-finals of the Sevens series in Vancouver on Saturday morning. After wins against Spain (33-14) and Japan (40-7), the French lost their last group game (21-10) to the Wallabies.
Australians are a cut above
From the start, the Australians took control of the game as the French failed to attack. Sevens all-time leading scorer (39 tries) Madison Levy scored the game’s first points 30 seconds later as her sister Deegan made it 7-0 with ease.
The score didn’t move until half-time, but the French were back on pace after three minutes spent defending in the second half (14-0). The reaction came two minutes from the end from Joanna Grises, well seen on the outside (14-5). But Australia had more resources and took the lead in thirty seconds through Biel Terita (21-5). A last-ditch effort by Frenchman Ian Jason didn’t change anything.
France finished second in their group and Les Bleus face Group C’s second-placed team.
