Both leaders may face a turning point in awarding the trophy.
Ireland paves the way for England, who are 5 points behind in the tournament. However, it was not an easy victory, and it was only at the start of the second half that England were able to unlock the match through Richards ‘double marking, followed by a yellow card at Merrigan (57’).
Ireland seem to be able to overcome the result by scoring the first goal of the match, but the gap will never be closed after a goal (10-17), and the English are widening the gap. On the last attempt the Irish try to collect the second attempt, but they are in trouble, and in the 80s they get the yellow.
