Wales' hopes of a top-five finish at the Women's Rugby World Cup were ended in emphatic fashion by Canada.
Wales had no answer to the Canadians' superior pace and power as they crashed to a 52-0 defeat at Queen's University in Belfast.
It means that Wales, who were beaten 15-0 by Canada in the pool stage, must now play host nation Ireland for seventh spot when the tournament draws to a close on Saturday.
Head coach Rowland Phillips had hoped for a positive reaction after Wales were unconvincing in defeating tournament minnows Hong Kong last Thursday, but it did not materialise.
Canada, runners-up at the 2014 World Cup, scored tries through Elissa Alarie (2), Barbara Mervin, Jacey Grusnick, Karen Paquin, Cindy Nelles and Brianna Miller, while there was also a seven-point penalty try and Miller kicked five conversions.
To compound Wales' misery, they also saw replacement back-row forward Shona Powell-Hughes receive a yellow card just four minutes after she joined the action.
