Tierney's Ireland set up chance to emulate feat of 2013's history girls

Women's Six Nations

The Ireland Women set up a Grand Slam decider with England following a tough 12-7 win over Wales at Cardiff Arms Park.

Their fourth win gives Tom Tierney's side a shot at matching the achievements of Ireland's class of 2013, when they host England at Donnybrook next Friday (kick-off 8pm).

England top the table by a point - 19 to 18 - after yesterday's 64-0 rout of Scotland.

Prop Lindsay Peat's second try of the Championship, converted with aplomb by player-of-the-match Nora Stapleton, broke the deadlock towards the end of an even first half.

Shona Powell-Hughes' then went over for a converted try, as Wales capitalised on a Peat yellow card, but Ireland did likewise when a sin-binning preceded winger Hannah Tyrrell's decisive try - her second in as many games - with 17 minutes remaining.
