Another brilliant tournament draws to a close

The Guinness Women’s Six Nations is entering the final weekend, so we’re taking a look back on the highlights, best performances and key stats from this year’s tournament.

So far, England have been the pick of the teams. The Red Roses have four wins from four, each with a try scoring bonus point, meaning they sit top of the table with 20 points.

They’ve earned these wins in mightily impressive fashion as well, scoring 38 tries – 19 more than their closest opponents, France – whilst their smallest margin of victory was their 46-10 win over Wales.

They also boast the most miserly defence, having conceded just two tries.

However, they haven’t made the most tackles. That honour goes to Italy, who have made 660 tackles so far in the tournament.

Looking at the individual stats, one player has stood head and shoulders above the rest.

Ellie Kildunne tops the charts for tries scored (nine), carries (59), metres carried (791.7), metres gained (629.5) and line breaks (13).

Safe to say, the Harlequins woman has been box office.

It’s not all about the glitz and glamour of scoring tries though. In the world of defence, others have shone.

Wales’s Alex Callender has made a mammoth 65 tackles so far in the tournament, the most of any player, whilst Scotland’s Evie Gallagher has been a turnover queen with six breakdown steals to her name.

Off the pitch, this year’s Six Nations saw the second-highest women’s rugby crowd ever when England and Ireland played at Twickenham in front of 48,778 spectators.

Meanwhile, a Scottish women’s rugby record crowd of 7,774 watched Scotland play England at Hive Stadium in Edinburgh.

Whether any of the above players and teams can add to their stats this weekend remains to be seen, but it’s sure to be a thrilling climax to another brilliant Women’s Six Nations.
