The Irish Women’s rugby team made the perfect start to the defence of their Six Nations trophy with a record victory over Scotland at Ashbourne tonight.

Last year Ireland beat the Scots to claim the Triple Crown on the way to a Grand Slam winning campaign, but in truth a revenge act never looked on the cards for the away side who were under the cosh from the outset.

At half-time the score line read 32-0 and it was damage limitation for the Scots who were at sixes and sevens trying to contain a rampant Irish outfit.

Sophie Smith got the first of 11 tries on the night after just five minutes, with Alison Miller (2), Heather O’Brien, Lyn Cantwell and Spence again giving Ireland a comfortable lead at the half-time whistle.

They added a further five in the second period and on this performance will take some stopping in this year’s Championship.
