Scottish centre Hannah Smith stood out as the game’s top player, Spanish press describing her as like a “knife who knew how to find the holes.”

Spain’s defeat means the national team loses points in the World Rugby ranking, although the team remains in a good position to quality for the next women’s rugby World Cup next year.
