Fullback Selica Winiata scored two tries as top-ranked New Zealand defeated No. 2 Canada 20-10 in international women’s rugby play Wednesday.

The Black Ferns extended their win streak over Canada to 12 games.

The two teams will meet again next August in pool play at the Women’s Rugby World Cup in Ireland.

Aotearoa Mata’u added a try and Kendra Cocksedge kicked a penalty and conversion for New Zealand, which led 8-0 at the half at Donnybrook Stadium.

Magali Harvey and Laura Russell scored tries for Canada.

The loss followed Canada’s 48-7 win No. 5 Ireland last weekend. Francois Ratier’s team wraps up its European tour Saturday against No. 3 England in London.

New Zealand, which beat England 25-20 on Sunday, wraps up its tour on the weekend against Ireland.
