International Round Up | Women’s Six Nations

Red Roses

England kicked off their Six Nations with a 57-5 victory over Scotland with Gloucester-Hartpury’s Connie Powell and Emma Sing playing key roles off the bench.

It was Powell’s try that secured the final score with Sing making her international debut when she replaced Ellie Kildunne in the second half.

Wales Women

Wales recorded a 27-19 win over Ireland to start their campaign in a winning fashion.

10 Gloucester-Hartpury players were involved in the matchday squad with Kerin Lake, Hannah Jones, Gwen Crabb, Cerys Hale and Lisa Neumann all starting with Kelsey Jones, Cara Hope, Bethan Lewis, Robyn Wilkins and Sisila Tuipulotu, who made her debut, all playing roles off the bench.

Jones scored a great try, racing over from 50 metres out after collecting the ball from Wilkins in what was a great link up play between the two Gloucester-Hartpury players.

Ireland

Neve Jones played the full 80 minutes as Ireland slipped to a narrow 27-19 loss to Wales. It was a competitive fixture, and the Irish will hope to build off their performance for the rest of the competition.

Scotland

Katie Dougan came on in the second half as Scotland slipped to a 57-5 loss to England. Coming on in the 70th minute, she was left with too much work to do but had a good individual performance.
