Women's Rugby World Cup: Sian Moore starts as Wales scrum-half against Canada

From BBC - August 12, 2017

Wales make two changes to their starting side for the Women's Rugby World Cup pool match against Canada on Sunday (17:00 BST) at Billings Park.

Sian Moore starts at scrum-half, having featured as a replacement in their opening 44-12 defeat by New Zealand, with Keira Bevan dropping to the bench.

Jess Kavanagh-Williams starts on the left wing in place of Jasmine Joyce.

"We will be looking to cut out the unforced errors against Canada," said Wales coach Rowland Phillips.

"We have spoken a lot about taking positives out of the game against New Zealand and that's something we have been working on in the build-up to tomorrow's [Sunday]match."

Two changes among the replacements see hooker Morfudd Ifans in line to win her first cap if she takes the field, and back row Shona Powell-Hughes selected after returning to fitness following injury in a warm-up match.
