This sensational offload was produced in Ireland’s clash with Wales in the Women’s Six Nations last Saturday.
Ireland took on Wales in the opening round of the TikTok Women’s Six Nations last Saturday. Wales came away 27-19 winners with a late fightback to seal an opening win for the visitors.
There was a record breaking crowd at the RDS for this important clash as Ireland took on Wales. Over 6100 spectators took to Ballsbridge in Dublin to watch a fantastic game of rugby in the March spring sunshine.
🏉 “This is the start of something really good – it genuinely is.”
Ireland may have lost their opening match of the Women’s Six Nations, but there are reasons to be optimistic after a record crowd of 6,113 attended Saturday’s game at the RDS.

Ireland led 14-5 at halftime courtesy of tries from Amiee Leigh Murphy-Crowe and then one just on the half hour mark from Linda Djougang. The Djougang try was set up from a sublime offload from Ireland lock Sam Monaghan, which was a beauty from out the back door.
