Women rugby stars on track for Grand Slam

IRELAND'S all-conquering women's rugby team have celebrated International Women's Day in grand style.

Having already captured the Triple Crown, the team are now on the brink of an historic Grand Slam after beating France 15-10 at a fog-shrouded Ashbourne.

The rugby heroines – including Siobhan Fleming and Marie Louise Reilly, pictured – have already won the Triple Crown after beating Wales, England and Scotland.

And now only Italy stands in the way of the Irish side pulling off a clean sweep in the Six Nations when they meet in Milan on St Patrick's Day.

After last night's performance, the Irish are well on their way to glory, and have already qualified for the 2015 Women's Rugby World Cup.
