Women’s Sevens Qualify For 2020 Tokyo Olympics

Australia’s women have qualified for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics despite missing the semi-finals in Biarritz.

A quarter-final loss against Spain meant they had to wait for the result of the France-Canada quarter-final to determine their fate.

Canada managed to beat France 12-5, meaning the Aussies secured the fourth spot in the overall World Series rankings, earning an automatic qualifying spot alongside New Zealand, Canada and the USA.

The Kiwis’ second-place finish at the Biarritz tournament was enough for them to secure the overall Series title, reclaiming the gong from Australia.
