Women’s rugby has moved forward significantly in the past few year, and the new 6 Nations trophy for Women was first commissioned in 2004. It has been played for each year since, and the current holders are Ireland.
The trophy, designed and originally made by Thomas Lyte, is restored in the London based workshop by a team of expert silversmiths. Crafted from sterling silver, the trophy originally took over 40 hours to complete, through a precise process of casting, spinning, hand engraving and polishing.
The championship is set to kick off on Friday 5th February, with Scotland welcoming England to the Broadwood Stadium. To find out more about the tournament and fixtures please click here.
