As the Women’s Six Nations finished of their top rank deciding match last night, the match between France vs Ireland was an obvious miss match by all means. France and England have proved to be above the rest as the Women’s Six Nations is once again a battle between the two nations.
France won the decider game against Ireland 15-56, never letting the Irish ladies breathe in offense. France came in aggressive not letting Ireland gain much yards, their defense was outstanding and one player in particular proved the most impressive in their fast line up.
Sevens star Marjorie Mayans was able to showcase her sevens skills in the game, the Olympian missed out on the games in Dubai for Emirates invitational 7s to play in the first round against Wales. It is on everyone’s mind if the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series regular will be a part of the Olympic squad going to Tokyo.
Mayans was awarded the Player of the Match after their impressive game against Ireland, her tackles were outstanding. Although Mayans isn’t the biggest player in their forwards pack, she is most definitely one of the most hard working, she was all over the field, no Irish player was able to pass the ” Les Crunch” as her solid hits forced Ireland to fumble the ball several times.
Mayans proving to be once again one of the most important players of the French side, her sevens skills also stood out as her vision and passing was something you don’t usually see in a forward, her time as a center and her time in the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series also showed in the game with her perfect running lines and her steps to evade the defense was also amazing.
Another sevens star fresh from Dubai, Caroline Doruin was also a big factor for the French side as her kicks were on point.
Romane Menager, the other half of the sister tandem, scored a try herself, as she made her comeback in the bigger format. Menager was also in Dubai for the 7s Olympic practice and it showed in the game, her big steps and fast pace gave France 5 points.
France will face England up next in the Finals as the two rival Women’s Six Nations teams battle it out for the top spot.
