Ireland flyer Alison Miller has been named the Sky Sports Sportswoman of the Month for March after helping Ireland regain the RBS Six Nations title.

The lightning quick 30-year-old was in devastating form in this year's competition, finishing as the top tryscorer in the tournament.

The Portlaoise winger bagged a hat-trick of tries in the 73-3 win over Scotland which sealed the Six Nations crown.

Miller claimed 82pc of the votes as she finished ahead of the likes of England striker Lianne Sanderson and heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson.
