Powerhouse performance by Ruan Sims inspires Jillaroos to victory

RUAN Sims produced a powerhouse performance to inspire the Jillaroos to a courageous 16-4 victory over the Kiwi Ferns.

Sims, the skipper and face of the Australian team, pulled off some huge hits as the home team dug deep to hold out a spirited New Zealand on a cool night in Canberra.

The Jillaroos led 12-4 at halftime, and had to withstand wave after wave of attacking raids on their tryline throughout the second half.

After losing the corresponding game last year, the Jillaroos will take plenty of confidence from the gutsy three-tries-to-one win looking ahead to the World Cup at the end of the year.

An emotional Sims, the sister of Korbin, Tariq and Ashton Sims, revealed after the game her simple goal had been to return to the Jillaroos after a string of recent surgeries.
