Hello and welcome to the women's Six

Nations. Last weekend the action was

0:00:440:00:50

fast and furious with Wales, France

and England notching up victories.

MUSIC.

0:01:050:01:13

Welcome to the home of the Glasgow

Warriors which tonight host Scotland

0:01:130:01:18

and France. The visitors come after

a dominant performance against

0:01:180:01:23

Ireland last weekend but over in

Dublin the Irish are looking to

0:01:230:01:28

redeem themselves and they take on

Italy after that whitewash.

0:01:280:01:36

Italy after that whitewash. I am at

the Twickenham Stoop for England

0:01:410:01:44

against Wales. There is some

partisan support behind me. I am

0:01:440:01:50

joined by former England captain

Catherine Spencer. Let's start off

0:01:500:01:53

with England, did they stutter

against Italy?

I am not sure starter

0:01:530:01:59

is the right word but they had a

poor first half giving away

0:01:590:02:03

penalties and making basic errors

and made up for it in the second

0:02:030:02:08

half.

Was it an opposite story from

Wales, who started strongly against

0:02:080:02:13

Scotland but fell away in the second

half?

Exactly, they had a good first

0:02:130:02:20

half but Scotland made positional

changes. They struggled with fitness

0:02:200:02:24

in the second half and we will see

how long they can play well today. I

0:02:240:02:28

think it will be a competitive first

half.

It promises to be a fantastic

0:02:280:02:33

fixture. We have royalty. Prince

Harry is watching. The commentary

0:02:330:02:39

team is Johnny Hanno -- Johnny

Hammond.

0:02:390:02:43

team is Johnny Hanno -- Johnny

Hammond.

0:02:430:02:48

Waterman moves back to the preferred

15 shirt. England still looking

0:02:560:03:06

15 shirt. England still looking for

that perfect fit.

0:03:060:03:16

that perfect fit. Wales welcome back

experience. Charlotte Harrison come

0:03:160:03:20

straight back in at eight -- Sinead

Harris -- Sioned Harries. Parker

0:03:200:03:36

partners veteran of two World Cups

Wilkinson. And Eleanor snow --

0:03:360:03:45

Eleanor

0:03:450:03:49

Eleanor so -- Snowsill is back.

Running the line-out for England.

0:03:540:04:03

Has been there go to. Technically

good in that area but Wales have

0:04:030:04:08

defended really well. Got it to

ground. Poppy Cleall is there.

0:04:080:04:18

Player of the match last week. She

backs it up in this round for their

0:04:180:04:25

second try.

Just gets over the line

and has the time to place it. The

0:04:250:04:30

referee saw it before the players

managed to celebrate.

0:04:300:04:42

Daley-Mclean had to stop for the

pass. Abigail Dow will not be denied

0:04:440:04:48

this time. Try number seven in this

her fourth cap.

An outrageous

0:04:480:05:01

statistic, Abigail Dow. She is an

excellent finisher. Really strong

0:05:010:05:06

and aware and brilliant in defence.

Look at this from Waterman, looking

0:05:060:05:11

in and out. Breaking the space for

Abigail Dow and she makes no mistake

0:05:110:05:16

from there.

0:05:160:05:18

Scott was a little bit upright and

Sioned Harries dealt with her well.

0:05:250:05:33

Here comes Sarah Bern.

0:05:330:05:39

Here comes Sarah Bern. Leanne Riley.

Comes openside.

0:05:440:05:50

Comes openside. And England at a

canter. Pouring forward.

They have

0:05:500:05:55

already chalked up try number three.

She looks one way and realises that

0:05:550:06:01

is where the Welsh defence is and

decides to go the other.

0:06:010:06:12

Butchers tried to turn that ball

over. Just smashed off it. She has

0:06:360:06:42

serious gas! Here it is and the

bonus point already within half an

0:06:420:06:48

hour.

Too many threatening runners

out there for Wales. They never

0:06:480:06:58

regroups properly.

0:06:580:07:03

regroups properly.

-- regrouped.

Wales are being told to pick up

0:07:040:07:07

there discipline.

0:07:070:07:10

England just put their foot down on

the pedals. The power pedal. As they

0:07:190:07:27

have the ability to do. Such a

technically sound unit. They want to

0:07:270:07:32

go all the way. Marlee -- Marlie

Packer driving the bus. It is over

0:07:320:07:43

the line. The referee can see it.

She awards it. Who will emerge?

It

0:07:430:07:50

is Marlie Packer. The patients. The

ball takes an age to get to the

0:07:500:07:59

floor once they get over the line

but it gets there eventually.

Good

0:07:590:08:06

from Amy Cokayne. Down on the far

side.

0:08:060:08:16

side. Daley-Mclean. For Rachael

Burford.

0:08:170:08:25

Burford. The dummy with the scrum.

A

lovely score. It is a lovely piece

0:08:250:08:30

of skill from Rachael Burford. Those

are not easy with the ball low. You

0:08:300:08:35

have to get it right. A brilliant

combination from the experienced

0:08:350:08:40

ten, 12.

Hunter sets off.

0:08:400:08:49

ten, 12.

Hunter sets off. Great

pick-up as it normally is from Sarah

0:08:500:08:54

Hunter. Into the corner. It is Poppy

Cleall. Three tries in two weeks.

It

0:08:540:09:04

is a very good finish. Two tries

again. Becoming a more dominant

0:09:040:09:11

force for this England team.

0:09:110:09:18

Giving more opportunities to England

and some space. Ellie Kildunne! My

0:09:240:09:33

word, what a score from the

teenager.

Absolutely audacious! What

0:09:330:09:39

a try! This is a try worthy of

Danielle Waterman. The gas that took

0:09:390:09:53

her over the line, that is an

outstanding try from the England

0:09:530:09:59

youngster.

That is some way to

finish this game. Superb.

0:09:590:10:11

finish this game. Superb. Applause

from Prince Harry. England, a job

0:10:110:10:13

well done and the full ten points.

It is really good for the team. I

0:10:130:10:20

cannot believe they are such a good

pack. The second row is running the

0:10:200:10:25

line-out. I am proud of the

performance and proud of my

0:10:250:10:29

performance and I want to go out

there and do myself proud and

0:10:290:10:33

everybody proud. In the second half

we came out better than the first.

0:10:330:10:39

Our defence are incredible. We are

proud of keeping a zero on the

0:10:390:10:45

scoresheet.

An

0:10:450:10:46

proud of keeping a zero on the

scoresheet.

An incredibly polished

0:10:460:10:47

performance and I am delighted to

say we have been joined by Tamara

0:10:470:10:53

Taylor. Congratulations, H tries.

How good did it feel on the part?

I

0:10:530:11:00

know the score is big but there is

still a lot for asked to work on.

0:11:000:11:06

Some tries went begging in the first

half. Second game in and a couple

0:11:060:11:10

more to go and lots of work.

You and

Abbie Scott running the England

0:11:100:11:16

line-out. Where you satisfied in

that area?

They had a good drive in

0:11:160:11:22

the midfield area but we came in to

attack the set piece and line-out

0:11:220:11:30

and scrum, looking back in review

hopefully it will be a positive

0:11:300:11:35

experience.

Over 100 caps. You have

been around a few years. How

0:11:350:11:41

impressed are you by the likes of

Ellie Kildunne, who had another

0:11:410:11:45

great game?

It is genuinely nice to

have the experienced players and

0:11:450:11:52

young kids like LE coming

0:11:520:11:57

young kids like LE coming through --

Ellie coming through. There is so

0:12:010:12:03

much talent across the country and

those coming through are the start

0:12:030:12:08

hopefully of what will be a

fantastic long career for England.

0:12:080:12:12

Thank you for braving the elements.

Congratulations.

0:12:120:12:21

That incredible England victory

getting the royal seal of approval.

0:12:210:12:24

It is cold and wet tonight.

Thankfully no snow, unlike three

0:12:240:12:31

weeks ago when there was a winter

storm before the ironically named

0:12:310:12:35

warm up match that had to be

cancelled. Ground staff could not

0:12:350:12:41

clear the snow. Thankfully no snow

and how Scotland would love to get a

0:12:410:12:47

victory in front of this home crowd.

They came so close against Wales.

0:12:470:12:55

But they have a huge task against

the impressive French side. Your

0:12:550:13:00

commentator

0:13:000:13:00

the impressive French side. Your

commentator is Nicky.

0:13:000:13:07

commentator is Nicky. COMMENTATOR:

Laura has been rewarded for her role

0:13:070:13:10

in getting Scotland going last week.

Malcolm is back at flanker. And

0:13:100:13:18

Macmillan moves to prop. Chloe

Rollie the ever present attacking

0:13:180:13:29

threat at 15. France make two

changes.

0:13:290:13:36

Scotland looking to punch a hole

around the side of Safi N'Diaye, who

0:13:490:13:56

looks to hold it up. France have

turned it over. A huge hit on Lisa

0:13:560:14:05

Martin.

The referee has given the knock-on.

0:14:050:14:13

This was the pass, Camille Boudaud.

Scotland, you can hear them shouting

0:14:130:14:21

try to hold the pressure. Romane

Menager controls it well at the

0:14:210:14:27

back. The referee not wasting too

much time in giving the penalty. It

0:14:270:14:34

will be a chance for Jessy

Tremouliere to open France's

0:14:340:14:37

account.

0:14:370:14:43

account. Only slotted two out of

seven last week against Ireland. The

0:14:430:14:50

Scottish captain recognising the

moment to go in and play like a

0:14:500:14:54

flanker. Emma Wassell, good feet. I

thought Lise Arricastre had got in

0:14:540:15:07

there. The referee once staying on

their feet.

0:15:070:15:14

The decision here is the Scotland,

to have their first opportunity for

0:15:240:15:29

points in the game.

0:15:290:15:34

points in the game. Scotland have

the lead. Sarah Law goes through the

0:15:340:15:40

uprights.

0:15:400:15:50

The Harlequins ladies second row,

superb at the line-out. Somebody is

0:15:510:16:00

going to the bin. The referee is

sticking to his word.

0:16:000:16:12

sticking to his word. Patricia

Carricaburu is going to descend bin.

0:16:120:16:19

Scotland don't have too many players

to defend it to begin with. They

0:16:190:16:23

need to get the cavalry in place if

they are going to stop this French

0:16:230:16:27

attack, which they can't. We now

have danger is France can be from

0:16:270:16:36

this sort of range and that was

textbook from Agathe Sochat.

0:16:360:16:43

textbook from Agathe Sochat. Decent

kick over the top. It is absolutely

0:16:440:16:49

brilliant from France. Cyrielle

Banet is going to finish it off, but

0:16:490:16:58

it was the vision from Pauline

Bourdon. Didn't look like too much

0:16:580:17:08

was on. Pauline Bourdon, spotted the

opportunity, send it downfield.

0:17:080:17:19

France try and look for the power

and pace game we are so used to

0:17:190:17:23

seeing from them. Scotland are

putting up a stern fight.

0:17:230:17:33

putting up a stern fight. Scotland

are only a penalty way of getting a

0:17:330:17:36

losing bonus. It is France in

possession at the moment. The French

0:17:360:17:46

look more dangerously

0:17:460:17:53

look more dangerously stop it is

trying three for France. Suddenly be

0:17:530:17:56

opened tin. They can be so danger is

around the corner. France will be

0:17:560:18:06

eyeing up the chance to get the

fourth try and the bonus point.

0:18:060:18:19

fourth try and the bonus point. They

have got themselves close. The ball

0:18:190:18:20

is available. It is available for

Jade Le Pesq. No they fire into the

0:18:200:18:27

right. As the Scottish defence don't

enough? It appears so, then France

0:18:270:18:35

go to the base of the posts. Referee

is going to have a look.

I haven't

0:18:350:18:44

seen the ball grounded against the

poll. Can you advise me yes or no,

0:18:440:18:49

please?

It looks pretty good from

there for Jade Le Pesq.

The ball has

0:18:490:18:57

been grounded, you may award the

try.

The try has been given.

0:18:570:19:06

Brilliant work from Jade Le Pesq and

the fourth try bonuses secured.

0:19:060:19:15

the fourth try bonuses secured. No

problem at all. The referee blows

0:19:150:19:21

the final whistle, it has been a

great performance by Scotland. It

0:19:210:19:26

has been get the job done

performance from France. They have

0:19:260:19:30

their pace and power game nullified

by the home side. What a match, at

0:19:300:19:37

great conditions but at least no

snow. I am joined by the Scotland

0:19:370:19:47

coach and Jade. France come with

such clout, we were expecting a bit

0:19:470:19:53

battle -- big battle, and the fact

you lost by a big score, how do you

0:19:530:20:00

feel about that?

I am proud of the

team, everybody stepped up against

0:20:000:20:07

the physicality battle. France are

renowned for going strong. Everybody

0:20:070:20:12

stepped up and it is something we

can take away and build on. Everyone

0:20:120:20:17

has done so well, I cannot explain

how proud I am of their efforts

0:20:170:20:21

tonight.

He said France will always

going to be a big as, but you must

0:20:210:20:27

be proud of how the girls defended,

particularly in the first half?

0:20:270:20:31

Coming into this game after the

Welsh game last week, physicality

0:20:310:20:34

was a big work on for us. The

challenge was, can we hope it and

0:20:340:20:40

they definitely did that. Would the

size of the French team and the

0:20:400:20:44

reputation and players they have

got, given the result we had last

0:20:440:20:47

year, the team has developed hugely

and from the physicality point of

0:20:470:20:52

view, we got stuck in number girls

should be proud of themselves.

You

0:20:520:20:57

put in some big hits and you are

playing your rugby in France, how is

0:20:570:21:02

it going for you? You have taken to

it and the team love you and the

0:21:020:21:08

girls love you, it seems to be a

great match, as it were?

It is a

0:21:080:21:14

fantastic opportunity that Scottish

rugby has allowed me to do. I have

0:21:140:21:17

grown with my rugby and learnt a lot

on and off the pitch. It is good

0:21:170:21:22

because I can bring stuff back I

have learned over there. It is an

0:21:220:21:29

opportunity of a lifetime and one

that has been beneficial for my

0:21:290:21:32

progress as a player.

How important

is it to have players like Jade and

0:21:320:21:37

others who have taken to the

professional sport, but going to

0:21:370:21:41

France, learning new skills and

bringing them back and raising the

0:21:410:21:45

bar in Scottish rugby, so it is on

the up?

It is fantastic, the support

0:21:450:21:51

we have got here, it was an early

3000 people. The girls playing in

0:21:510:21:55

France makes a big difference to the

girls (. The girls who play in the

0:21:550:22:01

Super League in England as well. It

raises the bar for the girls who are

0:22:010:22:06

home based here. Hopefully that

transfers into the whole team and it

0:22:060:22:12

transfers onto the pitch.

That is

the plan. It is easy to forget when

0:22:120:22:17

we look at these matches in

isolation that Scotland is

0:22:170:22:20

relatively young in comparison to

France, who finished third in the

0:22:200:22:23

World Cup in England who finished

second in the welcome. Where do you

0:22:230:22:28

think the Scottish game for the

women is now?

It is continuously

0:22:280:22:33

growing, as you said we are a young

team and to improve year and yet, we

0:22:330:22:37

are a young team coming through and

everybody is sticking to it and

0:22:370:22:40

buying in. It is fantastic we can

keep on building. It was a great

0:22:400:22:45

performance from us but nowhere near

where we are going to be. It is a

0:22:450:22:50

journey we will progress on. It is

only the beginning, we're not here

0:22:500:22:54

to mess about in this championship,

we are here to improve year on year.

0:22:540:23:00

Thank you for your company this

evening, our final match of this

0:23:000:23:05

evening was Ireland against Italy.

Let's handed over to the commentary

0:23:050:23:10

team.

0:23:100:23:16

COMMENTATOR: Briggs has got players

outside her. Good science from

0:23:280:23:32

Ireland in the opening

0:23:320:23:39

Ireland in the opening minutes of

intent. Looks like Ali Miller has

0:23:390:23:41

done herself damage. It is tough to

watch. We are not going to Recio the

0:23:410:23:48

pictures.

0:23:480:23:53

pictures. There is a applause for up

Alison Miller.

0:23:570:24:06

Alison Miller. Paula Fitzpatrick...

Hughes has a look.

0:24:100:24:24

Hughes has a look. Italy,

desperately defending. They are

0:24:240:24:26

holding firm for the moment. There

is Williams and over the post and

0:24:260:24:33

Ireland have their first points of

the six Nations for 2018.

Powerful

0:24:330:24:40

scrum put Italy under pressure. They

moved the ball through the phases.

0:24:400:24:45

Going at the Italians and the

Italians get sucked in. It is an

0:24:450:24:50

easy running for Megan Williams.

0:24:500:24:58

easy running for Megan Williams.

Set

up the conversion attempt. Seven

0:24:580:25:01

points for Ireland. A rare

opportunity with ball in hand on 22.

0:25:010:25:09

The Italians have numbers out wide.

Ireland get their defensive line.

0:25:090:25:17

They have players both sides. They

choose to go left and the referee

0:25:170:25:24

says Ireland are not rolling away

against Lindsay Peat. A penalty for

0:25:240:25:28

the Italians. Michaela Sillari with

this first attempt on goal from

0:25:280:25:36

either side. Over it goes, as you

would expect and Italy with the last

0:25:360:25:41

kick of the half have their first

points on the board. Claire Molloy

0:25:410:25:47

goes herself.

0:25:470:25:54

goes herself. Leah Lyons, the

Italians continued to make the

0:25:540:25:56

tackles. Lindsay Peat... Short, says

the rhetoric, but not by much and

0:25:560:26:08

Ireland feel they are over. And they

are.

0:26:080:26:14

are. Is it the captain? It is. Try

for Keira Griffin. Well, they banged

0:26:150:26:24

on the door long enough and

eventually it opened.

0:26:240:26:35

eventually it opened. It is good.

14-3.

0:26:350:26:47

14-3. Ireland get the scrum moving

in the right direction. This is

0:26:470:26:51

ominous for the Italians. It is at

the feet of Griffin. She finishes.

0:26:510:27:00

Try number three for Ireland and try

number two per the captain. If there

0:27:000:27:06

was any doubt about this game, that

is bad. On its way and over it goes.

0:27:060:27:15

-- that is that. The Italians win

the line-out and three metres short.

0:27:150:27:25

Consolation, potentially for the

Italians and they are over the line.

Ingo Italy. Chants for Michaela

Sillari. Doesn't have the legs and

0:27:480:27:54

that will be that.

Massive, been

awhile since we have had a win and

0:27:540:28:01

it is a massive boost for the girls

we played the most expansive rugby.

0:28:010:28:07

It shows we can move the ball around

and threatened teams in attack. We

0:28:070:28:11

were disappointed we conceded at the

end, but we know what we have to

0:28:110:28:19

work on against Wales.

Ireland (

count against Italy. England and

0:28:190:28:24

France at the top and their match in

March looks like a title decider.

The Six Nations takes a break next

week, players recover and fans get

0:28:300:28:33

their breath back and the

championship returns in two weeks,

0:28:330:28:37

but there is plenty more sport

coming up on BBC. Live coverage of

0:28:370:28:42

the Winter Olympics continues on BBC

One right now.
