Mon, 13 Mar 2017 15:34
Large england women try 800

In the Women's Six Nations match at the Stoop, England's left wing scored no fewer than seven tries. Seven! It was a Six Nations record.

This is a wonderful rugby year for all three of England's Six Nations teams.

The seniors and the Under-20s are sure of winning their championship and both need to beat Ireland for the Grand Slam.

In the women's Six Nations England are currently on top of the log but they will need to beat or draw with Ireland to take the championship. A win could complete the England triple of Grand Slams.

On Saturday, England's seniors set up a record in the Calcutta Cup when they won 61-21. The Under-20s won 33-5 and the women set a record with their 64-0 win

It took a great effort by Ireland at Cardiff Arms Park to get their narrow win over Wales, but it was enough to keep England well within their sights.
