Ireland's women claimed their first RBS 6 Nations Grand Slam thanks to a 6-3 win over Italy on St Patrick's Day.

A day after their male counterparts slumped to defeat in Rome, full-back Niamh Briggs' two penalties settled a hard-fought game in Ireland's favour.

Italy's Veronica Schiavon had kicked the hosts into an early lead, but the Irish battled back to complete the clean sweep.
