Each weekend we take a look back on the sporting highs from across Ireland and around the world through the medium of numbers.

This weekend we look at a record try hauls in the Six Nations, a glorious end to the Cheltenham Festival, Tipperary cutting loose and more…


The record number of tries scored by an Ireland team in the Guinness Six Nations, seven more than the Grand Slam-winning French side and three times as many as England.


Another try-scoring record for the U20 side that secured their own Grand Slam running in nine against Scotland at Musgrave Park.


The number of Six Nations matches that Italy had played since their last win, a run brought to an end by a glorious try in the final minute of their final game of this year’s tournament against Wales.


The number of race wins, out of seven, on the final day of the Cheltenham Festival for Irish trained winners, including A Plus Tard and Rachael Blackmore in the Boodles Cheltenham Gold Cup.


The number of seconds at the end of the Lidl Ladies Football National League Division One Semi-Final that it took Donegal to score two goals and secure a first final place since 2017 at the expense of Dublin who had led by five points going into the final two minutes.


The number of goals that Tipperary scored in their Allianz League win over Antrim, six more than the total theyt had in the four previous games in the competition.
