Aimee Barrett-Theron of South Africa has been appointed to the last (main?) game on Day 2 of the eighth Women's Rugby World Cup taking place in Ireland.

By Paul Dobson, Moonsport

She and assistant referee, Cwengile Jadezweni, are the only match officials at the Women's World Cup whose country is taking part.

The matches in Round 2 are again all in Dublin, using the facilities of the University College of Dublin.

The main match is between France and Australia. They are both strong sides. In the first round, France hammered Japan while Australia just lost to the eager Irish. This Sunday's match could just be the closest - and most physical - of the day.
