Ireland demolish Wales in Six Nations opener

WALES LITERALLY did not lay a glove on a very impressive Irish side.

It was the dream start for Ireland in the Women's Six Nations, as they took apart Wales with relative ease in the first game of the tournament.

The final score was Wales 0-45 Ireland, with coach Adam Griggs saying that confidence is now "sky-high" going into our next game against France.

The only complaint that he may have is that his side were 31-0 up at half-time, and the second half didn't match the barnstorming start made in the opening few minutes.

Beibhinn Parsons was the star of the show, scoring back-to-back tries in the first half. At just 19 years of age, she really is a special talent.

Speaking after the game, Griggs said: "It was a game of two halves, that old cliche, but I think in that first half you saw maybe some of the frustration of not playing for so long come out.

"We were really clinical in some of those parts. The pleasing thing is a lot of those things that came off we worked hard on in training.

"We spoke about it before this game, putting in a performance that showed all the hard work we've done so far so I was really pleased by that.

"We've worked really hard the last couple of years to build a competitiveness in this group. This group had the responsibility this week and for the most part everyone performed really well."

The Girls in Green take on France next in Donnybrook at 2.15 on 17 April.
