RAF and England's Amy Cokayne dives over to score a try during the Women's Rugby World Cup Quarter final

England, with the RAF's Amy Cokayne in their starting line-up, are through to the World Cup final after beating Canada 26-19 in this morning's first semi-final.

Two brilliant tries from Abby Dow, including possibly the try of the tournament, a try from Marlie Packer and the kicking of Emily Scarratt, saw England through .

They led narrowly 15-12 at half-time and had to defend for their lives against an inspired Canada team.

New Zealand beat France in the second of the semi-final matches, meaning England will face the host nation in the final on Saturday 12 November.
