Quinternationals Round-Up: Women’s Six Nations Week 2

An update on our Quinternational heroes competing in this year’s Women’s Six Nations

Round 2

This weekend saw nine Harlequins Ladies players competing internationally for three different nations, across two separate age groups; Jess Breach, Shaunagh Brown, Vickii Cornborough, Abbie Scott, Emily Scott and Leanne Riley for England; Leah Lyons for Ireland; Deborah McCormack for Scotland; and Ellie Green for England U20 against the Army, who themselves had three Quins in their ranks, including Jade Mullen, Bethan Dainton, and Bev Gilbert.

Ireland and Scotland got the second-round action underway on Friday evening at Scotstoun stadium, with the visitors running out as comfortable winners, 22-5.

On Saturday, England Women U20 managed to overcome the Army 33-5 in Aldershot thanks in no small part to Green’s strong kicking display with four conversions.

The biggest match of the weekend, however, took place in Doncaster on Sunday as the two heavyweights of the Championship, England and France, went head to head at Castle Park in front of over 4,500 supporters. The Red Roses overwhelmed the French up front and out wide, eventually finishing as 41-26 winners courtesy of two tries from Breach taking her international tally to an incredible 14 tries in only four tests.


Round 3

Next up, England travel to Cardiff Arms Park to take on Wales on Sunday 24th February (kick-off: 12:30), as they look to further extend their lead at the top of the table following two bonus-point victories.

Also on the road, Ireland travel to Italy to face the Azzuri in the Stadio Lanfranchi on Saturday (kick-off 18:30) with Scotland playing France at the Stade Lille-Metropole later that evening (kick-off: 20:00).

All the players mentioned above, and many more, will be on show at The Game Changer on Saturday March 30th as Harlequins Ladies take on Gloucester Hartpury in the final round of the 2018/19 Tyrrells Premier 15s. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to see your heroes make history.
