Women's Six Nations: Round 3 Review

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

Scotland 15-14 Wales

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

Sarah Law's late penalty earned Scotland Women a first Women's Six Nations win since 2010 as they beat their Welsh counterparts 15-14 at Broadwood Stadium on Friday night.

A first-half score from Bristol's Carys Phillips and a penalty try had put Wales Women 14-0 up, but Lisa Thomson and Rhona Lloyd crossed for tries, with Law kicking a conversion and penalty with five minutes to go to seal an historic triumph.

The game saw Bristol's Jasmine Joyce, who starred for Team GB at last year's Rio Olympics, gain her first cap for Wales and was also joined by Bristol Ladies trio Elinor Snowsill, Sian Moore and Caryl Thomas. 

England 29-15 Italy

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

An impressive seven Bristol Ladies players featured 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 became joint fourth on the all-time England Women’s appearance list earning her 88th international cap.

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

Hooker Victoria Fleetwood scored a hat-trick for England Women as they fought from behind to defeat their Italian counterparts at the Twickenham Stoop.

Sofia Stefan's score had given the Italians an early lead, but Kay Wilson scampered over after Harriet Millar-Mills had created space with a powerful burst before Bristol's Amy Wilson Hardy followed suit moments later.

A tight maul saw Fleetwood over for her first after Elisa Pillotti was sin-binned for a dangerous tackle before the hooker crossed from another rolling maul and she became the first English forward to score a Women's Six Nations hat-trick just after the break.

Sara Barattin pegged England back, with Manuela Furlan scoring a third Italian try after English replacement fly-half Katy Mclean was red-carded.

Ireland 13-10 France

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

Ireland Women, featuring Bristol's Claire Molloy, mastered the squally conditions at Donnybrook to deservedly grind out a 13-10 win over France in front of an enraptured 3,886-strong crowd.

Caroline Ladagnous had put France Women in control early on in the second period after a first half in which Stapleton's penalty was the only score.

But hooker Leah Lyons hit back, with Stapleton converting and then adding another penalty that moved Ireland 13-7 ahead.

Jessy Trémoulière responded swiftly with a first penalty of the afternoon, but it was not to be as Ireland held on for their third consecutive win, leaving them level on 14 points with England Women.
