Aussie women take The Ashes

I feel very sorry for the English women who were beaten by Australia overnight to surrender the Ashes - with it being a one Test "series" there's no chance of England fighting back. The two teams seem pretty evenly matched but you have to hand it to Australia's women - attacking captaincy from skipper Alex Blackwell declaring behind on day 2, a hatrick from Rene Farrell, playing only her second Test, and a quality innings from debutant Sarah Elliott on day 4, swung the match in Australia's favour.
