    It's been a brilliant spectacle for women's rugby with ferocious defence and tackles. The result doesn't reflect the game itself but I am so proud of the England girls.

  3. 'It was so loud'

    FT: Ireland 7-34 England

    England second row Harriet Millar-Mills speaking to Sky Sports:

    "The first half was so intense but thankfully we came away with the win.

    "It was so loud. The crowd were incredible, so much atmosphere."

    The girls will be elated to come here and put in such a big performance. It's been a brilliant game of rugby and Ireland have given England a massive challenge.

  5. Full-time

    And there it is.

    England women are the Six Nations Champions with their first Grand Slam since 2012.

    Ireland 7-34 England

    And here they come again.

    Harriet Millar-Mills runs a good angle up the middle but Ireland continue to tackle their hearts out.

  7. Post update

    Ireland 7-34 England

    It was always going to be a tough ask for Ireland against England's world-class attack.

    11 tries against Wales, 12 tries against Scotland and six tries this evening in Donnybrook.

    The England U20s completed their Grand Slam hours earlier, and the women are minutes away from completing their own success.

    Lydia Thompson is a classy winger and it's great to see her stretch away and score with a brilliant finish. She is so powerful through the tackle and has such good foot speed.

  9. Post update

    Ireland 7-34 England

    The quality of England's defence has been the difference this evening.

    289 caps on the bench and the floodgates have opened.

    And, they've played against the wind in this second period.

  10. Converted try - Thompson races clear

    Ireland 7-34 England (con Scarratt)

    A hint of a forward pass from Emily Scarratt but Lydia Thompson shows lovely footwork and once again outpaces the Ireland defence.

    World Champions England have been too strong for this Ireland side in the second half as Emily Scarratt adds two more points.

  11. Try - Ireland 7-32 England

    Lydia Thompson

  12. Converted try - Scarratt with seven points

    Ireland 7-27 England (con Scarratt)

    It's a cruel game.

    Just as Ireland had dragged themselves back into the game, England come up with a world-class try.  

    Danielle Waterman collects a loose kick at full-back and produces a lovely sidestep to start the break.

    Bianca Blackburn with a nice pass inside and Emily Scarratt runs free down the wing before converting her own try.

    That has to be game over now.

  13. Try - Ireland 7-25 England

    Emily Scarratt

  14. Post update

    Brilliant play from the Ireland team who kept the ball down the middle and finished it off well.

  15. Converted try - Lyons pulls one back

    Ireland 7-20 England (con Stapleton)

    But Ireland don't need the penalty.

    They take the direct route straight through the middle and Lyons powers through Tamara Taylor over the whitewash.

    Ireland show great character and they're back in this game.

  16. Try - Ireland 5-20 England

    Leah Lyons

  17. Post update

    Ireland 0-20 England

    It's worth remembering that this is the first Six Nations to feature a fully professional squad.

    38 players in the England set-up are on professional contracts, 18 of those full-time.

    England are really showing their superiority now but Ireland won't lie down - even with only 14 players on the field.

    Centre Jenny Murphy has been their best player this afternoon and she breaks the tackle once again to set Ireland on the front foot.

    Advantage coming for the high tackle...

  18. Converted try - Hooker Cokayne scores again

    Ireland 0-20 England (con Scarratt)

    Laura Keates took the ball well and it's another break from centre Emily Scarratt who is running wild in the midfield this afternoon.

    Amy Cokayne is on her shoulder and finishes the break for England's third try of the game, and her fifth of the championship. Rapid pace from the hooker.

    Scarratt with the conversion and England are up to 20 points.
