2006 FIRA Women's European Nations Cup

With most of the senior nations preparing for the World Cup, FIRA organised a "Women ENC XV a side Tournament" for the six leading nations who were not in the Six Nations. While it does not appear to be part of the Women's European Championship sequence, it was very similar to the European Championship, especially the Pool B competitions.
