Women's Six Nations: Round 3 Preview

Thirteen Bristol Ladies players to feature in this weekend's Six Nations action, including Jasmine Joyce who makes her Wales debut. 

Scotland v Wales

Friday, February 24th (KO 6:20pm) at Broadwood Stadium.

Bristol's Jasmine Joyce, who starred for Team GB at last year's Rio Olympics, scored two tries for Wales in an uncapped victory against Spain last month and is back in the team for the Scottish clash. Led by Bristol's Carys Phillips, Wales will be targeting the game as an opportunity to regain momentum, following a heavy defeat last time out to England.

The pair will be joined by Bristol Ladies trio Elinor Snowsill, Sian Moore and Caryl Thomas. 

England v Italy

Saturday, February 25th (KO 1pm) at Twickenham Stoop. 

An impressive seven Bristol Ladies players will feature on Saturday; Marlie packer, Amy Wilson Hardy and captain Sarah Hunter in the starting fifteen with Izzy Noel-Smith, Poppy Cleall, Amber Reed and Sarah Bern on the bench. 

Captain Sarah Hunter will become joint fourth on the all-time England Women’s appearance list with her 88th international cap on Saturday.

Leading try scorer, Bristol's Danielle Waterman has been rested for this game. 

Ireland v France

Sunday, February 26th (KO 12:45pm) at TDonnybrook Stadium

Nine tries in a 55-0 win against Scotland ensured that reigning Women's Six Nations Champions France moved back into Championship contention, but if they want to remain in touch then they must turn over Tierney's unbeaten Ireland side, featuring Bristol's Claire Molloy, at home.

Though they fell away after leading England Women 13-0 at the break, that 40 minute period is a reminder of how irresistible the French can be at their best.

Safi N'Diaye is a bundle of power at No 8, while the back-three of Jessy Tremouliere, Elodie Guiglion and Shannon Izar showed against Scotland that they need no second invitation to cut loose.

No. 8 Paula Fitzpatrick is the beating heart of Ireland women and - in the continued absence of skipper Niamh Briggs and the potential absence of Sene Naoupu - will be vital to getting Tierney's side on the front foot against a physical French outfit.
