Women's RBS 6 Nations time again
Victorious Irish team last year PIC IRFU
The Six Nations rugby tournament begins next week, with Ireland looking to defend their historic win of last year. So, no pressure then ... 

The fixtures are laid out on the IRFU website with the first match at home next Friday. Unfortunately it looks like I won't make any of them thanks to that thing called work, but will be cheering them on. And of course I'm delighted to see the game against Italy is in Dublin's Aviva Stadium - historically women's games have only been played in the provincial pitch in Co Meath.

There's always a great atmosphere in Meath, but it's hard to get to unless you have a car or lots of time to take the bus. Hopefully they'll get a good crowd for this - the men play Wales earlier in the day and you'd hope some of the crowed will stay on.
