May 16, 2014 (ISN) – New Zealand and Australia remain in contention to be crowned the IRB Women’s Sevens World Series 2013/14 champions ahead of the final day of the season in Amsterdam.

In beautiful sunshine in the Netherlands, both sides qualified for the Cup quarter-finals after hard fought victories on day one.

The southern hemisphere rivals are the only teams who can mathematically win the Series, which kicked off in Dubai last November.

Australia play Brazil in the first of the quarter-finals on Saturday while New Zealand face Russia.

England – the other unbeaten team on day one – will face France, while rivals USA and Canada meet in the other quarter-final.

The Bowl semi-finals on day two will be contested by Spain and South Africa, followed by hosts Netherlands against Ireland.

The final day of the IRB Women’s Sevens World Series 2013/14 will also see the IRB Women’s Sevens Player of the Year announced. Australia’s Emilee Cherry and Charlotte Caslick along with New Zealand’s Sarah Goss and Kayla McAlister are in the running for the prestigious award this season.

All the action from day two will be streamed on wsws.irb.com from 12.00 local time (GMT +2)
