Italy defeated the United States 22-10 to open play on the second day of the Women’s Rugby World Cup at Whangarei, New Zealand. Canada beat Japan 41-5 and Wales closed out the first round of group games with a thrilling 18-15 win over Scotland. Top-seeded and tournament favorite England laid down a clear marker in its opening match on Saturday when it scored 14 tries in beating Fiji 84-19. England left no doubt in the minds of any of its opponents that it will take an extraordinary team and performance to prevent them winning the world title for the third time.
