Watch the highlights as Ireland's Women's 7s earned a place in Sunday's Cup semi-final at the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in Seville.

The girls in green have earned a place in the final four after a comprehensive 36-12 victory over Canada in the quarter final on Saturday.

Aiden McNulty’s side headed into the weekend hoping to build on their 5th place finish at last weekend's event in Malaga.

They got off to the ideal start, topping Pool B with wins over Poland, Brazil and Russia.

With a range of talent in the side, including captain Lucy Mulhall and Ireland 15s and Connacht star Béibhinn Parsons, it is Amee-Leigh Murphy Crowe who has proved to be the standout player for the Irish so far this weekend.

With Russia leading 14-7, Murphy Crowe collected the kick through from Stacey Flood and slipped through the Russian tackles for an excellent score.

The Railway Union player continued her fine form in the Spanish sun later on in the day.

Her hat-trick was crucial as Ireland cruised past the Canadians to continue their impressive form at this weekend's event.

The pick of the tries was this sublime effort, the product of daring passing and considerable enterprise.

Their reward for an indomitable showing is a semi-final against England on Sunday at 2:22pm Irish time.

Meanwhile, the men's team are also in cup contention in Seville this weekend.

After win over Germany and Jamaica, Anthony Eddy's side were beaten to the top spot in Pool B after a 19-12 defeat to Argentina.
