Women’s 6 Nations Round 4

  • +1

Looking ahead to another exciting weekend of rugby with the 4th round of the RBS 6 Nations

This week’s fixtures:

Friday 11 March 18.00 – Scotland v France at Broadwood Stadium, Cumbernauld

Saturday 12 March 18.05 – England v Wales, Twickenham Stoop, London

Sunday 13 March 13.00 – Ireland v Italy, Donnybrook, Dublin

Intriguing matches in store for round 4 of the RBS Women’s 6 Nations this weekend. After Wales somewhat surprising win against France, can they also cause an upset at the Stoop, or will the fired up England team continue their progress and delight their home crowd?

Meanwhile Scotland, a team that has shown great improvement under new coach Shade Munro but still seeking that elusive win, will they find it against a wounded France or will France come back even stronger?

Finally its home advantage for Ireland against Italy, with whom they are currently level on points, will it give them the edge to win?

We will find out in just a few days.  In the meantime, here are some facts from the RBS 6 Nations together with the current table:

Scotland v France

  • France Women are the last team to lose to Scotland Women in the Six Nations, going down 10-8 at Lasswade in 2010.
