Women's Six Nations: Round 2 Review

England Women won convincingly in Round Two of the Women's Six Nations as the title contenders begin to announce themselves.

Wales 0-63 England

Saturday, February 11th (KO 11:30am) at BT Cardiff Arms Park.

England Women continued their impressive start to the 2017 Championship as they downed Wales in Cardiff on Saturday afternoon.

Bristol Ladies backs Amy Wilson-Hardy and Danielle Waterman contributed four tries between them, in an 11-try demolition at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park with Bristol's Nolli being named Player Of The Game.

"We’ll take a lot of pride in terms of how we played as a team, it was a real 23 player effort," said Waterman.

"The girls who came off the bench did a cracking job, Wales had a lot more ball in the last 20 minutes.

"We showed real ferociousness to keep them off the line and make sure we walked away without conceding any points."

France 55-0 Scotland

Saturday, February 11th (KO 8pm) at Marcel Deflandre

Defending champions France Women sealed their first win of their 2017 campaign with a nine-try victory over Scotland, after they were beaten by a stunning England comeback in round one.

Scrum-half Jade Le Pesq scored a second-half double to lead the French charge in La Rochelle while Scotland will be left licking their wounds after their second consecutive loss following last week's agonising defeat to the Irish.

Although Scotland defended well in the last ten minutes, the damage had already been done and France ended up comfortable victors.

Ireland 3-27 Italy

Sunday, February 12th (KO 1pm) at Tommaso Fattori

Ireland Women, featuring Bristol's Claire Molloy, picked up a bonus-point victory in Italy to go top of the table with the fourth try being scored in dramatic fashion at the death.

With the game poised at 3-3 at half-time, Ireland took their chances after the break with three quick scores.

Leah Lyons, Sophie Spence and Paula Fitzpatrick all went over in quick succession to give the visitors a commanding lead heading into the final quarter but they left it late to cross the whitewash for a fourth time.

Hannah Tyrell's long run from inside her own half sealed the bonus point in the match's final play just moments after the Italians pressed for a consolation try of their own.

After beating Scotland in dramatic fashion in round one, the victory puts Ireland top while they prepare for a showdown with the French in a fortnight.
