Ireland women's team suffered their second defeat in the TikTok Six Nations rugby championship this afternoon when they fell to a heavy 40-5 defeat by France in Toulouse.

The Irish team, which included Tipperary players Dorothy Wall and Amee-Leigh Murphy Crowe, never got to the pace of the game against a dominant French side.
