TWO RGC women were involved in Wales’ dramatic 3-3 Six Nations draw at a strong Italy side.

Gogs’ back Lisa Neumann started the clash in Leece, with experienced Jess Kavanagh taking her place on the bench.

Wales were denied what could have been a famous victory as the TMO ruled out a wonder-try from Jasmine Joyce on 72 minutes, with the stalemate ending a run of five successive championship defeats for the Welsh squad.

Olympic sevens star Joyce received an overhead pass from Elinor Snowshill just outside the 22 and raced to the posts for a score that would have gone done as one of the greatest of all time in Welsh women's rugby history.

Snowshill's popped pass gave Joyce the chance to show off her speed and strength as she sped up the right wing.

Two hand-offs left two Italians eating grass and then she headed diagonally across field to beat two others.

But no sooner had she touched down behind the posts than the referee consulted the TMO about the original pass. Then came the bad news for Wales with the try being ruled out.

It was cruel luck for the gallant Welsh side, who dominated long periods of the first-half before being forced to showcase their defensive courage, commitment and technique in the face of a second half onslaught from the home side.

Both Neumann and Kavanagh both acquitted themselves well during the contest, and both will be hoping for further international experience on the big stage when Wales welcome a formidable England to the Arms Park for their next Six Nations contest on February 24.
