A 98-0 win for Team Canada at the Womens World Cup of Rugby over Hong Kong Wednesday, August 9, in Dublin, Ireland.

In all Canada scored 16 tries to win their opener.

Vulcan's DaLeaka Menin didn't contribute to the scoring, but she did set up Canada's seventh try of the day on a big run down to the Hong Kong goal line.

Canada plays Wales Sunday, August 13, and then it's the big time as they face four time World Cup champion New Zealand, Thursday, August 17.
