TikTok Women’s Six Nations Round 5 – a weekend in numbers

Laure Sansus

After five fascinating rounds of TikTok Women’s Six Nations action, the 2022 Championship is complete after Super Saturday blessed us with a corker of a day.

Italy stole the show late on in Cardiff, with Michela Sillari’s late penalty earning Le Azzurre a 10-8 victory in the opener of Super Saturday.

The big one followed, as England sealed the Grand Slam with a 24-12 win over France in Bayonne, as they won their fourth consecutive TikTok Women’s Six Nations title.

And in the late kick-off it was to be Ireland who were celebrating as they left it very late to overcome Scotland in Belfast with the last kick of the game sending the Kingspan Stadium into raptures with a 15-14 win.

After such an incredible Super Saturday and concluding the Championship itself, we have a look at the key numbers.
