Six Nations Super Sunday

The Women's Six Nations wakes up from its break with a Super Sunday of three games, all starting within one hour of each other. Between two and three o'clock on Sunday Wales will host France, Scotland will travel to Italy, and Ireland will play their 100th international away to England at Esher.

Unlike the last round there is the potential for upset in all three matches. Wales should beat France who are very poor travellers, but you never can tell with the French - on paper they have the ability to push the Welsh close. Equally Scotland should be too strong for Italy, but two years ago the Italians ran out 31-10 winners and last year they pushed both Ireland and France close in their home games.

And finally, Esher, Ireland have never won against England, and that is unlikely to change, but they have been far from disgraced in recent years. Ireland's defence has improved year on year, and in Niamh Briggs they possess one of the most reliable kickers in the women's game. England are certainly taking no risks - they have selected their strongest possible side for Sunday's game.

See the IRB website for an excellent preview of Sunday's games
