The Women's 2021 RWC (held in 2022) was an unforgettable kiwi experience. Not only is New Zealand a beautiful country (flora, fauna & great people), but rugby runs through their veins. The hosts were spectacular, and the Black Ferns put on a show throughout. They defeated a great French side in an exciting semi final, followed by a world class performance against England in the final.

The Women's Eagles left it all on the pitch, but it wasn't enough to beat a stout Canadian side. Led by Canadian rugby royalty Sophie de Goede, the team played big against the USA, defeating them twice in 8 days. Both of the de Goede parents were captains for their perspective Canadian sides and they're also great fans of the game travelling the North Island throughout the tournament and livin' the van life.
USA won the tourney in 1991, and are only one of three teams to lift the cup (New Zealand has won 6, and England 1). Can the Women's Eagles win it back down unda in 2027 or on home soil in 2031?
