It was a composed performance from Ireland who claimed third place in the tournament overall.

Italy struggled as they notched up 25 handling errors in the contest which was moved from Parma to Dublin in midweek due to quarantine restrictions.

Amee-Leigh Murphy Crowe starred on her first Ireland start with a solo score early in the second half and another towards the end of the game.

It was a return to earth for Italy after their impressive 41-20 win over Scotland last week, although they did manage to score a second half try through Melissa Bettoni.
