Lindsay Peat's envious list of sporting achievements continued to grow in 2020 as she helped Ireland secure a joint second place finish in this year’s 2020 Six Nations.
Ireland defeated Scotland, Wales and Italy in the Six Nations with Peat impressing on each occasion. The Irish prop brought physicality, heart and skill to the Irish game which saw the forward pack dominate and set up a platform for the Irish backs.
Undoubtedly one of the country’s most versatile female athletes, Peat became the tournament’s oldest scorer as she held off four Italian players to cross over for a try. The Irish prop was instrumental in Ireland’s Six Nations turn-around from last year and looks as hungry as ever to excel in her sport.
The 40-year old has represented Ireland in basketball and soccer as well as reaching three-all Ireland finals with Dublin, winning one. an All-Ireland football title with Dublin, Peat only took up rugby last year and made her debut in November.
After scoring her try against Italy, Peat said, "It's another moment to add to the collection that when I retire, I can look back fondly on it. I was delighted to get the start and it's even nicer to cap it with a try.”
