    We are pinged for deliberately wheeling the scrum. French kick to touch is a bit of a slice though, but they still have the throw in which is secured and they maul initially for a few yards before recycling but knocking on in the tackle and we have the advantage. France pinged for not releasing.
    Tis but a scratch.

        Persistent booing from one arsehole in particular and the kick is shanked. Somehow we have possession again, up on halfway and have to start all over again. Kick ahead too far and mark is called.

          Lineout is just inside French half. Ball spread wide quickly and we make a few yards, then recycled and come back inside but knock on. France clear and adv over but Briggs takes it and spots a half-gap, so we are back up to halfway. Great strength from one of our players but then we are pinged for holding on.

            Excellent footwork by Baxter to catch the ball before it bounces into touch then avoid the tackle and ship it inside. We then win a penalty at the breakdown and have a LO inside the French half. It's non-stop stuff!!

              Less than 5 minutes left. Lineout is successful and we set up a decent maul - more than decent, and with a couple of recycles we are still moving forward towards their 22. AH feck, handling error when we try to go wide and although the French clearance goes directly into touch they still have the scrum just outside their own 22, with less than 3 minutes left.

                That ref hasn't reffed ONE high tackle and the French are at it all day!

                  Scrum moves quickly an they try to clear but it bounces for Miller to take it back infield. O'Brien is isolated and France recover possession inside our 10m. An attempted chip through bounces off an Irish player straight into touch between our 10m and 22. One minute left on the clock, time out for treatment to a bleu.

                    Free kick conceded at the lineout. 15 seconds on the clock. France have possession inside our 22. Clock is red. France get a try at the death to kill us off.

                    Arse.

                        Conversion missed, but it makes no odds now. Well done to the Irish Women anyway, fought to the very end and could have won it until the final minute. 18-25 FT.

                          The French have got away with murder! One of them should have been in the bin after 20 mins. They simply couldn't cope with the superior Irish technicity in the ruck! They got a warning after the umpteenth infringement but then carried on with impunity - maybe someone told the ref "you're in France you know!".

                            Well done to the ladies good game unlucky in the end. Did themselves and Ireland proud.

                              England 11 - 0 up and looking stronger. The Canadian half backs aren't up to it, and have a look at their 7 in the scrum - she has one leg way forward making it impossible to push.

                                Perhaps seven is honed for a quick getaway.
