About as one sided a poll you’re ever likely to see.

Irish winger Alison Milller was the undisputed choice as Sportswoman of the Month on Sky Sports, strolling to victory with a whopping 82 percent of the public vote.

Miller scored four tries in Ireland’s successful Six Nations championship, including a hat-trick in the final day hammering of Scotland.

She was a unanimous winner among the voters with the second highest vote going to English striker Lianne Sanderson (13 percent) and heptathlon rising star Katarina Johnson-Thompson (2 percent).

The 31-year-old Portlaoise native’s four tries in the championship left her as the tournament’s top try scorer, and she will also be remembered for her famous try in the historic 17-14 win against New Zealand in 2014.
