Ireland Women went one better than their male counterparts last weekend picking up the Six Nations Championship and the Triple Crown with a comprehensive 3 – 73 win against Scotland Women at Broadwood Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Ireland Women kept a Triple Crown and Championship firmly in their sights with a comprehensive 0 – 20 win against their Welsh counterparts in Swansea on Sunday afternoon.
