Women's Rugby World Cup: Black Ferns celebrate win

From Morning Report, 8:54 am on 10 August 2017

Black Ferns fullback Selica Winiata scored a hat-trick of tries in their opening Women's Rugby World Cup match overnight. She told RNZ reporter Barry Guy she was happy with the team's first performance but there are a few things to work on.

Irish journalist Aisling O'Rourke told us they have to increase capacity at the Dublin's UCD Bowl. 

"The bowl has been extended because of demand for tickets for these games and I think we're in the region of 16,000 expected for each of the days with the Irish pool games a sell-out so far, which in women's sport is completely unheard of."
