Beibhinn Parsons has won the Women’s Six Nations Try of Round 2 after her breath-taking first score in Ireland’s 45-0 victory over Wales on Saturday.
Some slick hands across the Irish team got the ball to Parsons who proceeded to break two Welsh tackles with a scintillating break before sprinting home to score.

Parsons went on to score again just minutes later, as Ireland wrapped up the bonus-point within 18 minutes in the Welsh capital, and got their 2021 Championship off to the perfect start – and set up a mouth-watering clash with France in Round 3 this weekend.
The Irish star romped to victory with 52% of the public vote, while teammate Eimear Considine finished second with 20% after the full-back scored an eye-catching effort of her own in the seven-try victory.
Similarly to Parsons, Considine weaved through the Welsh defence with ease, with nobody in a red jersey able to get a hand on her, as she charged her way to the try line for her side’s fourth try of the game.
