Black Ferns crowned 5-time World Champions

The Black Ferns were crowned World Champions for a record fifth time in Belfast, Northern Ireland over the weekend.

The team defeated rivals England in the final match of the tournament on Saturday, extending their reign as the most successful national rugby team in history.

The Black Ferns have lost just one of the previous six World Championship tournaments, traditionally held every four years. Their nearest rival for global success is their male equivalent, the All Blacks, who have been crowned World Champions on three occasions.
