Sydney, Australia - Canada's Womens Sevens Team claimed the bronze medal at the HSBC World Series event after a convincing 40-12 win against Russia.

After winning all three of their pool fixtures, the 2017 champions could not defend their title as they were defeated 26-0 by a strong New Zealand outfit in the semi-finals.

The team can take many positives from a strong performance in Sydney and will be looking to go all the way in the next leg of the HSBC World Series in Japan.
