The Women’s Rugby World Cup gets under way in France on Friday, with 12 nations vying for glory.

New Zealand arrive as holders following their narrow 13-10 win over England in 2010, with the Red Roses looking to gain revenge and lift the trophy for the first time since 1994.

The Black Ferns have claimed the last three World Cups, all via final defeats of England.
