Ireland advanced to the semi-finals of the Women's Rugby World Cup for the first time in their history with a convincing 40-5 victory over Kazakhstan in Marcoussis.

Having shocked four-time champions New Zealand 17-14 in midweek, the Irish knew another win on Saturday would see them finish top of Pool B with a 100 per cent record.

And they proved too strong for Kazakhstan, who had lost both their opening group games and trailed 14-5 at the interval with debutant Sharon Lynch and Tania Rosser dotting down either side of a Svetlana Karatygina try.

Philip Doyle's side then ran away with the second half, scoring 26 unanswered points including a penalty try plus scores for Siobhan Fleming, Lynch again and Vikki McGinn.
