Grand Slam winners Fiona Coghlan and Nora Stapelton have returned the Women's RBS 6 Nations trophy to Chief Executive John Feehan at the Six Nations offices in Dublin.
Munster 39-10 Connacht
A first-half double from David Wallace, along with skipper Anthony Foley's ninth-minute opener paved the way for victory over a jaded Connacht. Munster added another three tries in the second half.
The ever-alert Foley claimed a dropping ball at a line-out to dive under Mike Walls' tackle for the opening try. Jeremy Staunton clipped the conversion wide but moved the visitors 8-0 in front from a 28-metre penalty on 23 minutes. Munster rounded off a 20-point first half against 14 men, following prop Dan McFarland's sin-binning, wth Wallace going over for two tries.
Eric Elwood scored for a penalty Connacht on 52 minutes and five minutes later, down to 13 men with number eight John O'Sullivan sin-binned for going over the top, a slick maul saw referee Hugh Watkins award the penalty try. But Munster pulled away on the hour mark as Jason Holland went under the posts on 67 minutes.
Pusey had enough brute strength to clamber over in the right corner past McPhillips five minutes later and Cullen completed a double for the hosts over Connacht this season as he ended a fine 40-metre move with his first try and convert with four minutes remaining.
Ulster 28-6 Leinster
Ulster winger Tyrone Howe scored the only two tries of the first half to secure an 18-6 interval lead. Flyhalf David Humphreys got a third try in the second period.
But Ulster could not get a fourth try which would have earned a precious bonus point. It means they are joined at the top of the league by Gwent Dragons with Llanelli three point behind with a game in hand. The Dragons finish with an away game against Leinster which has been switched from Donnybrook to Lansdowne Road.
