Welcome to Dublin four week three of

the women's Six Nations. After an

0:00:460:00:52

intriguing opening fortnight, the

players have had a well earned rest.

0:00:520:00:56

But now, they are ready to go again.

The start of the Six Nations

0:00:560:01:04

championship is upon us. We know how

good she is. There is nothing Italy

0:01:040:01:08

can do here.

Wales get themselves on

the scoresheet.

0:01:080:01:17

the scoresheet.

The first points of

the Six Nations.

My Word... What a

0:01:170:01:23

score.

England lead the way and have

won all 11 meetings in the Six

0:01:230:01:31

Nations against Scotland. Can

Scotland stop the rot? Wasn't quite

0:01:310:01:38

Murrayfield but still goods support.

France are formidable at home and

0:01:380:01:43

they will be keen to keep in touch

at the top. 2015 winners Ireland are

0:01:430:01:49

hoping to get their title track back

on track against Wales, who also

0:01:490:01:55

have one win from two. We will have

the action here at Donnybrook late

0:01:550:02:00

in the programme. But we start with

Scotland and England. The red Roses

0:02:000:02:04

were looking to clock up their 50th

win in the competition and a certain

0:02:040:02:11

prop was eyeing up another slice of

history Martin Gillingham is your

0:02:110:02:16

commentator.

0:02:160:02:22

COMMENTATOR: England being led out

by Rochelle Clark. 134 caps for

0:02:230:02:29

England and if she gets on tonight,

which I suspect she will, she will

0:02:290:02:34

become the most capped prop. Shane

Monroe has maintained faith in the

0:02:340:02:42

side beaten by France. Two

ulcerations, one sees the return of

0:02:420:02:47

Sarah Bonar in the back row. Jade

Konkel, one of the few full-time

0:02:470:02:56

professionals retained her place at

number eight. Almost half this team

0:02:560:03:01

play league rugby in either England

or France and that is a factor in

0:03:010:03:07

Scotland's improvement. Simon

Middleton has mixed his England team

0:03:070:03:10

up a bit. Five players among the

replacements against Wales start

0:03:100:03:14

here.

0:03:140:03:22

here. The front five is world-class.

Sarah Bern at tight head, seems to

0:03:220:03:28

improve with every match. Danielle

Waterman switches to the wing and

0:03:280:03:37

Ellie Kildunne is at the back.

Leanne Riley. She was among the try

0:03:370:03:43

scorers against Wales at the

Twickenham Stoop. Here she is again.

0:03:430:03:56

That was a superstar. We have been

playing less than two and a half

0:03:560:04:01

minutes and England have their first

try.

0:04:010:04:08

try.

Lauren Cattell takes that on

and then Danielle Waterman on for

0:04:080:04:14

another England tried.

Abbie Scott.

Second row partner, Tamara Taylor,

0:04:140:04:24

whose career runs parallel to the

rise of English rugby. Speed of

0:04:240:04:28

hands and there is a young lady who

pops up in the midfield. She might

0:04:280:04:32

as well be a centre. Sarah Bern, a

second try of this Six Nations

0:04:320:04:39

campaign.

We see this wide pass,

forward runners through. Sarah Bern

0:04:390:04:47

in the wide areas, takes another

really well-deserved try.

0:04:470:04:59

really well-deserved try.

Katy

McLean, who led England to the title

0:05:000:05:03

four years ago.

0:05:030:05:07

This is better from Scotland. Sarah

Law, looking to get her hands on the

0:05:160:05:23

ball. Reparation playing the

advantage. The ball slipping through

0:05:230:05:30

the fingers of Rhona Lloyd. We will

come back all the way to the other

0:05:300:05:35

side of the pitch for the penalty.

First shot at goal. She has got the

0:05:350:05:42

distance and she has the line.

Scotland are on the board. Scotland

0:05:420:05:53

will have to tighten up the set

piece. Here goes Lisa Thompson.

0:05:530:06:03

Scotland still have it. Taken

forward by Helen Nelson. Over the

0:06:030:06:11

line, can they get it down? And the

referee says they have.

You see the

0:06:110:06:21

timing. Thompson, kicks ahead.

0:06:210:06:27

timing. Thompson, kicks ahead. We

thought Ellie Kildunne had done a

0:06:270:06:30

fantastic job but couldn't keep

control of the ball. Jade Konkel,

0:06:300:06:34

uses her power and drives over the

try-line. England couldn't do

0:06:340:06:38

anything about that.

Look at them

lining up in the white jerseys. The

0:06:380:06:47

off-load from Abbie Scott didn't

find the play it was meant to but it

0:06:470:06:51

is back in the hands of England

again. Six metres out. Going over in

0:06:510:06:56

the corner, goes Charlotte Pearce.

You have to say, Scotland rather

0:06:560:07:03

gifted that one. Look at that.

0:07:030:07:14

gifted that one. Look at that. That

is the power fade, Tiger Woods

0:07:150:07:17

style. Daily McLean into the hands

of Lagai to e-mail. Charlotte

0:07:170:07:29

Pearce... Important tackle coming in

from Rhona Lloyd. Danger hasn't

0:07:290:07:35

gone. Ellie Kildunne, opens up her

stride and that is England at their

0:07:350:07:42

brilliant best.

Quick ball, so

difficult to deal with. Another wide

0:07:420:07:48

pass and fantastic break from

Charlotte Pearce. The all too

0:07:480:07:54

familiar long stride from Ellie

Kildunne and England will be pleased

0:07:540:07:56

with their bonus point.

0:07:560:08:02

with their bonus point.

Danielle

Waterman, she has done it once and

0:08:050:08:08

it worked that time. The defender

going lower than she did the first

0:08:080:08:14

time. Ellie Kildunne Dunn what an

off-load to Charlotte Pearce. She

0:08:140:08:21

pirouettes, twists and turns and

scores.

Well picked up by Ellie

0:08:210:08:28

Kildunne. Going through the tackle.

Charlotte Pearce kept on her feet

0:08:280:08:32

and over the try-line again.

0:08:320:08:39

and over the try-line again.

What a

hard running line from Tuima. The

0:08:390:08:44

dummy, the step and the celebration.

After that, she had to score a try.

0:08:440:08:54

Lovely line, dummy and pass.

Slightly early celebration, I think.

0:08:540:09:03

Rochelle Rocky Clark, earning her

135th cap. She becomes the most

0:09:040:09:17

capped prop in the history of test

rugby.

0:09:170:09:23

Here goes Danielle Waterman.

Drifting inside. It is another score

0:09:290:09:36

for England and there was barely a

Scottish hand laid on her white

0:09:360:09:41

jersey.

Solid scrum for England.

Caity Mattinson, running wide.

0:09:410:09:50

Danielle Waterman just glides

through.

There it is, 15 points out

0:09:500:09:57

of a possible 15. They have beaten

Scotland.

They punished as an basic

0:09:570:10:02

errors we made but it came from the

defensive pressure they were putting

0:10:020:10:06

us under. When we kept it tight and

we dominated the set piece, it paid

0:10:060:10:12

off. Scotland are a good side and

this is a tough match to come to

0:10:120:10:16

here in Scotland.

I am joined now by

former Ireland captain and a former

0:10:160:10:24

Six

0:10:240:10:24

former Ireland captain and a former

Six Nations champion, Fiona

0:10:240:10:26

Coughlan.

England, impressive yet

again? They are on fire, you would

0:10:260:10:31

think after the World Cup they would

be tired, but they are on fire. All

0:10:310:10:38

the new caps in the England squad

are making her play even better, if

0:10:380:10:42

that is possible. The lines she

runs, dummy and old, she is

0:10:420:10:48

impressive and in the form of her

life.

Another player, fellow prop,

0:10:480:10:54

what can you say about Rochelle

Clark and the history that keeps

0:10:540:10:57

coming?

So impressive, she keeps

challenging herself and putting

0:10:570:11:02

herself in those situations. 135

caps at international level is

0:11:020:11:07

impressive. I think she will keep

going and is ranked fourth as the

0:11:070:11:10

most capped ever and fair play to

her.

If we focus on the match

0:11:100:11:16

between Ireland and Wales, there are

some recent and giggly history

0:11:160:11:20

between them with Wales beating

Ireland on the last day of the World

0:11:200:11:23

Cup to take the seventh spot but

Alan coming back in the preseason

0:11:230:11:28

friendly to beat Wales. What is the

rivalry like from an Irish

0:11:280:11:31

perspective?

It is one of the

closest games over the last number

0:11:310:11:37

of years. He was focused on them as

your home games because you try to

0:11:370:11:40

win them, but it has to be tough,

islands to the World Cup defeat

0:11:400:11:47

badly. When you look at the Welsh

pack, the seven starters that

0:11:470:11:53

started in the World Cup game and

the new Inn of back line. That will

0:11:530:11:57

be what Ireland will be looking to

expose. It will be tough from

0:11:570:12:02

bedsides and whoever controls the

game better will come out on top. If

0:12:020:12:07

Ireland can control it to the

probing kicks, I think they might

0:12:070:12:12

edge it.

Fiona, we will let you get

to the commentary box. Can Ireland

0:12:120:12:17

keep up their fantastic home form?

In the Six Nations they have lost

0:12:170:12:22

only two of the last 16 in front of

their home fans. Can be overcome

0:12:220:12:27

this spirited Welsh side? Let's find

out.

0:12:270:12:29

COMMENTATOR: Easy ball. What can

Wales do

0:12:350:12:46

Wales do defensively and Ireland are

over the line.

0:12:460:12:54

over the line. They have the first

try of the afternoon. Leah Lyons.

0:12:540:12:59

Simple ball. Leah Lyons, control at

the back. They go left and Leah

0:12:590:13:11

Lyons puts it down.

Trying to draw

it in. Got it. Got it. Terrific

0:13:110:13:27

it in. Got it. Got it. Terrific kick

from breaks. Very slow, Wales.

0:13:280:13:42

from breaks. Very slow, Wales. She

should get there. Ireland almost

0:13:430:13:47

there. Where is it?

0:13:470:13:54

there. Where is it? Is it Claire

Molloy? It is.

They have their

0:13:550:13:59

second try. Brilliant, just before

the half. Bad Welsh defence. Naoupu

0:13:590:14:14

off-loads Katie fits. Claire Molloy,

going over.

0:14:140:14:23

going over.

Ireland, through Niamh

Briggs, look to turn five into seven

0:14:230:14:26

and that is what they do. That will

be the final action of the first

0:14:260:14:31

half.

0:14:310:14:36

half. Melissa Clay, takes it on.

Doesn't make any ground. This is oh,

0:14:380:14:47

making the tackle. Evans, Ishii

over? Yes she is. The referee

0:14:470:14:54

agrees. It is a try for Wales,

exactly what they needed at the

0:14:540:14:58

start of the second half.

0:14:580:15:04

Sean Lee, Snowsill will add the

additional two? She does. It is a

0:15:050:15:12

7-point game -- surely? And Wales

have a spring in their step,

0:15:120:15:18

momentum is with them. Ireland need

to fight with defence. Lindsay Peat

0:15:180:15:22

with a high tackle. The arms went

up. The referee is going to have a

0:15:220:15:29

look. I would say that Ireland could

be looking at a yellow card here.

0:15:290:15:33

Wales will continue with advantage.

Taken on by the Welsh number eight,

0:15:330:15:45

Harries... Ireland asleep! Harries

waking them up. What a start to this

0:15:450:15:53

second half, for Wales! It was just

too easy. One, two, three, four

0:15:530:16:02

Irish players. Stood off.

High and

around the neck. Ten minutes.

May

0:16:020:16:10

consider a yellow, lucky because it

could have been worse. Ireland will

0:16:100:16:14

carry. Leah Lyons... An amount of

work. Ireland looking for another

0:16:140:16:23

spark. A try for Ireland! The

perfect answer after Wales began

0:16:230:16:33

this second-half at a rate of knots.

Switch born-again leading to the

0:16:330:16:38

first try in the first half... A

great finish by Sene Naoupu.

0:16:380:16:44

CHEERING

Over it goes.

0:16:440:16:55

Over it goes. Lindsay Peat driving

the legs. Clay looks around the

0:16:550:16:59

ball. The number is there. Cronin

goes in search of the ball. Sene

0:16:590:17:05

Naoupu... On the loop, and Hannah

Tyrrell! She has done it! Ireland

0:17:050:17:12

are in. They have a bonus point.

They made it look easy. An overthrow

0:17:120:17:21

on the line. They moved the ball.

Sene Naoupu passing back to her.

0:17:210:17:29

Into this space. Really good, good

pace and a great finish for a bonus

0:17:290:17:36

point try.

0:17:360:17:42

point try.

Molloy is a way! Claire

Molloy! What a finish! Magnificent.

0:17:420:17:56

You can see Claire Molloy's finish

at 78 minutes, to still have that

0:17:570:18:00

speed, power and pace, she is

phenomenal!

This will be... Claire

0:18:000:18:07

Molloy belts it! WHISTLE

Ireland have won today. There is

0:18:070:18:15

still a long way to go and a lot to

build on. But that is an improved

0:18:150:18:19

performance. They have won at

Donnybrook by 35-12.

It was very

0:18:190:18:30

physical, but we had to be switched

on from the get go. We couldn't

0:18:300:18:33

switch off at any time. We wanted to

be relentless and ruthless and I

0:18:330:18:38

thought the girls did really well

today. I thought our mindset and

0:18:380:18:42

patience and physicality was really

up this week.

You are looking at

0:18:420:18:47

that thinking, that could have been

the other way around. We got sucker

0:18:470:18:51

punched twice in the first half, at

half time we spoke about it. We knew

0:18:510:18:57

if we had the tempo in the game we

would create opportunities and we

0:18:570:19:00

did that, throughout the game.

Especially in the second half early

0:19:000:19:06

on but we didn't capitalise. That

will be our lesson.

0:19:060:19:12

What an incredible performance from

Ireland, especially in the second

0:19:120:19:15

half. Once again I'm joined by

former captain Fiona Coghlan but

0:19:150:19:20

also player of the match Claire

Molloy. Fiona, talk us through the

0:19:200:19:25

final performance?

They tidied up a

lot of areas that disappointed in

0:19:250:19:29

the Italian game, they were clinical

and took it to Wales and even when

0:19:290:19:32

Wales got back into the game at the

start of the second-half, Ireland

0:19:320:19:36

kicked in, down to 14 players. They

got a few more tries. Good building

0:19:360:19:41

on the last

0:19:410:19:47

on the last day and did a lot of

work on their weekend off!

Claire

0:19:470:19:49

on the last day and did a lot of

work on their weekend off!

Claire,

0:19:490:19:49

another player who stood out was

Sene Naoupu. She had her own try

0:19:490:19:52

that had her hand in a couple of

others as well?

She is an amazing

0:19:520:19:58

playmaker, we have Breaks and Sene

0:19:580:20:02

others as well?

She is an amazing

playmaker, we have Breaks and Sene,

0:20:020:20:03

she is a great defensive player --

Briggs. We have to keep playing with

0:20:030:20:09

her, she goes strength to strength.

There is a lot of changes in the

0:20:090:20:13

front and second rows, how do you

find that in your row, what do you

0:20:130:20:17

do rather than focusing on your own

game?

I'm very familiar with Paula

0:20:170:20:22

and Kira playing at number six. We

have had a lot of changes, Sally was

0:20:220:20:27

ruled out with an injury this

weekend. We have to adapt, and have

0:20:270:20:31

a big squad. We cannot rely on eight

players through the Six Nations. But

0:20:310:20:35

Leah Lyons really put her hands up

today, she had a good game as the

0:20:350:20:41

tight head.

You are an A&E doctor

over in Wales, how will they react

0:20:410:20:45

to that result?

They told me during

the week that they would cheer me on

0:20:450:20:50

but they would be cheering for

Wales! I do think they will be happy

0:20:500:20:54

enough but they probably would have

preferred Wales to win to be honest!

0:20:540:20:59

Congratulations, we do have to focus

on the final match of the women's

0:20:590:21:02

Six Nations we can. France were

looking to remain unbeaten, ahead of

0:21:020:21:07

them taking on England at the

ultimate weekend. They took on Italy

0:21:070:21:13

at the stag do fewer Rhaney. Just a

hop over for the visitors but the

0:21:130:21:17

French fans were out in force.

Commentary coming from Simon Ward.

0:21:170:21:30

COMMENTATOR: Somebody has two step

in... Some quick handling for

0:21:340:21:40

Tremouliere! It is tried time, and

once again, three consecutive Test

0:21:400:21:47

matches for the number 11. Handling,

and opening the door. She came

0:21:470:22:02

across quickly, Forlani. A cracking

start from Jessy Tremouliere a!

0:22:030:22:10

start from Jessy Tremouliere a! From

the Toulouse flanker, great legwork

0:22:110:22:12

and leg drive from the French

captain. Again, France find

0:22:120:22:17

themselves in a striking position,

again!

0:22:170:22:23

again! It is Banet and it is tried

time! A similar position from their

0:22:240:22:31

first successful kick...

0:22:310:22:38

first successful kick... The

assistant referee took a while to

0:22:390:22:40

confirm but what a fantastic kick!

Italy having to work overtime. Not

0:22:400:22:48

really able to get any continuity

into their game. Another episode

0:22:480:22:52

where effort doesn't give them the

advantage. An interesting call from

0:22:520:22:57

the skip. Opting to take the three

points... Tremouliere... The easiest

0:22:570:23:07

of kicks so far.

0:23:070:23:16

Tremouliere stretches out!

Tremouliere goes for glory! That is

0:23:200:23:25

the third try before the 30 minute

mark ticks up. A new breed, this

0:23:250:23:33

French team, and the way that they

play now, they are fully

0:23:330:23:36

developed... The youngsters are

coming through... You want impact

0:23:360:23:41

and you've got

0:23:410:23:48

and you've got impact for Menager!

The bonus point is good. 33 minutes

0:23:480:23:51

on the club and the scoreboard keeps

ticking over in the favour of

0:23:510:23:54

France...

0:23:540:23:59

France... Sochat hits the skipper,

in the eye... Taking control,

0:23:590:24:04

selecting forward gear. Sochat with

the ball. I do not think it will

0:24:040:24:09

come out to the backs. Tried time

again! Forward power playing

0:24:090:24:15

dividends for France. It is five for

the French team. One-way traffic in

0:24:150:24:20

the French half. A handful of tries

to take at the break. All going one

0:24:200:24:25

way at the moment.

0:24:250:24:31

way at the moment. France, looking

to add to that five

to add to that five try first half

Hall.

0:24:410:24:49

Hall. Taking it back! That is the

try that they were after, Rivoalen,

0:24:490:24:56

the angles were correct, the blue

line was breached. France with their

0:24:560:25:00

sixth try on the ball! Look at the

French power again. It produces the

0:25:000:25:10

ball for the backline and again it

flows effortlessly towards the try

0:25:100:25:16

line!

0:25:160:25:22

line! Menager with her second! It's

a thing of rugby beauty!

0:25:220:25:34

a thing of rugby beauty! Boudaud

doesn't like the options out wide!

She gets her first try in this

year's Six Nations.

year's Six Nations. Tremouliere adds

the final two points. 22 points that

0:25:480:25:53

she has amassed in this game.

quick look at the table... England

0:25:580:26:06

at the top with 15 points, the same

as France but the Red Roses go ahead

0:26:060:26:13

on points difference. Wales with one

winner on four in Scotland and Italy

0:26:130:26:18

are at the bottom. France impressive

once again. Fiona, we had to pick

0:26:180:26:23

out one player. Jessy Tremouliere?

She has stepped up her game in the

0:26:230:26:32

championship, kicking from touchline

conversions but it was her try,

0:26:320:26:35

striking on the line and pace and

power. She seems to be really

0:26:350:26:40

experienced and controlling at the

back for this impressive French

0:26:400:26:44

team. Using their forwards, a lot of

young backs coming into it.

0:26:440:26:47

Tremouliere is the link bringing

them together.

A lot of people were

0:26:470:26:52

predicting before the Six Nations

started, it may come down to that

0:26:520:26:56

match between France and England in

Grenoble, it is

0:26:560:27:04

Grenoble, it is looking to go that

way?

They are on a different level.

0:27:060:27:08

Their tries and scoring against

other teams in the Six Nations has

0:27:080:27:10

been immense.

We have highlights of

that match and other games from

0:27:100:27:13

round four when we are back on the

11th of March on BBC Two at 11:30pm.

0:27:130:27:17

Live coverage of the men's

equivalent the day before on BBC One

0:27:170:27:22

for 4pm. That's all from us here at

Donnybrook. Two wins now clocked up

0:27:220:27:29

for Ireland but it is France and

England who have a hat-trick apiece

0:27:290:27:33

and it is all set up very nicely for

that Saturday night in Grenoble in a

0:27:330:27:38

fortnight... Goodbye!
