Women’s Six Nations: Round 3

England Women kept their Grand Slam hopes alive after overcoming Ireland at Castle Park, whilst Wales suffered a heavy defeat to France at the Cardiff Arms Park.


England Women 27-0 Ireland Women

It was an 19th consecutive win on home soil for Simon Middleton's side, with the victory coming in front of 5,000 fans at a sold out Castle Park in Doncaster with Sarah Bern and Amber Reed earning a place in the starting XV. 

The Red Roses opened the scoring in the third minute, after Sarah Hunter crashed over the whitewash after a dominant score from England. 

Dow crossed from for the second score of the game early on to make it four tries in three games for the Wasps winger. 

Middleton’s side reverted to their deadly driving maul for a third as Vicky Fleetwood peeled off the back of a rolling maul to dive over the line and Jess Breech crossing in the corner to open up a 22-0 lead at the half. 

Dow had a second disallowed for an earlier forward pass but soon after England were over as McKenna darted through on the hour. 


Wales Women 0-50 France Women

Chris Horsman’s side had their moments, but it was Les Bleus who ran out deserved winners at Cardiff Arms Park racking up a half century of points on Sunday afternoon. 

Keira Bevan and Siwan Lillicrap started for Wales , whilst Manon Johnes and Lauren Smyth were named amongst the replacements for the round three clash. 

There were eight French tries in total with Cyrielle Banet and Laure Sansus both scoring twice.

Safi N’Diaye, Marine Menager, Julie Annery and Camile Boudaud added further efforts for Les Bleus as they kept Wales scoreless in Cardiff.
