But England are made of stern stuff and Australia and New Zealand, the traditional powers of the sport, have a brash new rival on the scene.

An Emma Tonegato hat-trick has put Australian Women in the gold medal match in resounding fashion.

New Zealand bookended half-time with another try to kick off the second half and then Shakira Baker finished a coast-to-coast effort to stretch the margin to 14 points, before a final Portia Woodman try sealed the result.

Fiji started the second half strongly with just six players.

England got a double, too, beating Canada 24-19 in the women's bronze-medal match and South Africa 21-14 in the men's playoff for third spot.
