Canada secured its place in the quarterfinals of the Women’s Rugby World Cup with a 22-12 win over Italy.
Hooker Emily Tuttosi scored two tries to lead Canada to the win over Italy on Saturday for a second straight win.
Canada conceded a try in less than 30 seconds, with Vittoria Ostuni Minuzzi scoring a try from her first touch of the ball, crossing the line barely before the sound of the opening whistle had died away.
After conceding the try, the Canadians scored 22 consecutive points for a second straight bonus-point win (for four tries scored in a game).
Third-ranked Canada (2-0-0) tops Pool B with 10 points, ahead of No. 5 Italy (1-1-0) and the sixth-ranked U.S. (1-1-0), both with five points. No. 13 Japan (0-2-0) has yet to earn a point in the group basement.
