Here's some stunning evidence why the women's rugby world hasn't just caught up to the Black Ferns but overtaken them.

As the four-time champion New Zealanders lick their wounds and get set to play for fifth place at the World Cup in France, the Canadians are preparing to take on England in Monday's final.

Canada reached the title match with an 18-16 win over hosts France in Paris that included an incredible length-of-the-field try.

It started by winning a tighthead at a scrum five metres out from their own line and finished with wing Magali Harvey showing a superb sidestep and startling speed to touch down.
