From ScrumQueens, interesting news about this year's Oceania XV Championship: it will be in november on three dates. Venue are the Fiji, if I have correctly read. Participating teams? They don't specify. The three days of competitions suggest four teams, but they could be also three, or six. I'd say Fiji (moreover if they are hosts), Samoa and PNG, then perhaps Tonga, perhaps Vanuatu (the article mentions the Vanuatu XV all-time debut), perhaps some other... The article mentions also New Zealand A and Australia A but probably it's referring to the 7s championship hosted by same Fiji few weeks before.
I think the XV championship will be a qualifier to the WRWC

I don't know if it was already known but there will be Zambia v Zimbabwe this saturday, as curtain opener before the men's same match.
The info comes directly from the World Rugby fixtures list https://www.world.rugby

Three different sources say the Spain v Ireland expected test match in November has been canned in favor of an Occitanie v Spain men+women doubleheader in Toulouse. Let's see if confirmation falls soon.

It's a pity though that there was a complete lack of information about the game and teams before the game, and I'm not sure we'll see much post-match either!

It looks like it was three tries apiece and either two penalties for Zambia or they managed to convert all three tries...

Three tries converted by Zambia, you may find some infos and photos on Tom Chaloba fb page. Curiously the score was 0-0 at halftime

* Zambia draws first blood with a try via Natasha Musonda on the 3rd min of the 2nd half
* 12 mins in the 2nd half and Zimbabwe score a try but missing the conversion. Scores are now 07-05
* Scores are now 14:05 for Zambia with a try by Mildred Malopa and a conversion by Anna Wilima Suzi
* Scores are now #Zambia 14: 10 as Zimbabwe respond with a try
* Zimbabwe scores their 3rd try but miss the conversion... Scores are now Zambia 14:15 Zimbabwe with less than 5 minutes to go
* Zambia scores their 3rd try via Prisca Samutela on the full time whistle with a successful conversion from Anna Suzi
