The Canterbury women's rugby team thrashed Hawke's Bay 69-0 in Napier on Saturday.

Following on from a good win against Otago last weekend the Canterbury women ran in 10 unanswered tries.

Coach John Sherratt said the performance was a complete team effort.

"They played really well," he said. "Hawke's Bay threw a lot at us in the opening half of the game but the girls stuck to their jobs and once we began to string a few phases together, things sorted themselves out."

Up 17-0 at the halftime break, Canterbury dominated the second stanza scoring 52 points.

Debutant second five-eighth Christina Falwasser scored three tries.

Canterbury now turn their attention to Manawatu next weekend as they strive for a top two finish.
