Wales and England to Meet in Women’s Six Nations Competition


The Women’s Six Nations tournament is quickly gaining momentum as Wales prepare to face their toughest test yet, taking on England in Cardiff. Wales have been on a roll, with two impressive wins in the tournament so far, and the front row trio of Sisilia Tuipulotu, Gwenllian Pyrs and Kelsey Jones have been the driving force in this success. The three have played a critical role in providing an effective platform for Wales’ move forward, and what is remarkable about them is their energy and longevity despite their youth – Tuipulotu is just 19, while the experienced Pyrs is 25.

The added professionalism among the female players of the Welsh National Team has certainly helped them step up their game, with the best example being the recovery of Tuipulotu. She has already made her mark in this Six Nations tournament, having impressed with her performance in the previous week’s win against Ireland and being named player of the match. We can now look forward to seeing how far Wales have come against tournament favourites England in their next fixture.

Speaking of England, they are a formidable team that have proved nearly unbeatable since their adoption of a professional attitude. The team boast a huge amount of talent from the sevens circuit which has added to their already-deadly backline – making them both exciting and formidable to defeat. But Wales are not to be daunted and have the confidence to come up against them, bolstered by the brilliant efforts of their forward pack.

The match looks to be an exciting one, with both teams boasting impressive momentum. Wales will have the home advantage and will be looking forward to showing the people of Wales that they are beginning to match the might of England’s professional players. Jones certainly is optimistic and aware of the pressure, but is more than up for the challenge, excited to show the potential their team has. Similarly, Pyrs is hopeful of a good game and is looking to credit the team as a whole for their success – hoping to show the collective strength of the Welsh Team.

The match is sure to be a spectacle, but only time will tell who will come out victorious in this electrifying contest. Besides being a top-tier sporting event, it will serve as testament to the excellent players Wales have to offer, as well as the levels of professionalism among the female national team.

As a company, the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) is responsible for creating a professional environment from which female players can take their game to the next level. WRU have been a great supporter of the female squad, providing an infrastructure for them to both learn and hone their skills. WRU has also provided assistance with contracts for female players, allowing them to further their careers.

With the figure of Elen Evans being brought up in the media, it would be remiss for us not to mention her. Evans was an exceptional player for Wales in her time and has left a legacy as an inspiring athlete. During her career, she travelled on the A470 while also playing internationally, which shows the dedication of female Welsh players. However, with WRU providing contracts to a lot of female players, Evans is not only glad there is more support available, but also proud at the level of skill the players in the current squad possess.

Finally, it should be said that while the match between Wales and England is sure to be an intriguing match, the Six Nations tournament is set to be thrilling as a whole. Wales have developed superbly, and it will be exciting to see just how far they can go in the competition. It is sure to be full of surprises and entertainment, with potentially explosive clashes coming up in the future.
