There are three changes to the Ireland women’s team to face Italy at Donnybrook on Sunday.
Nichola Fryday and Paula Fitzpatrick form a new-look second row, replacing Orla Fitzsimons and the injured Ciara Cooney.
Katie Fitzhenry returns from sevens duty and comes in for Claire McLaughlin at outside-centre.
Edel McMahon and Michelle Claffey could win their first caps on the bench.
Kerry’s Ciara Griffin will captain the team from number 8 while another Kerry native Ciara O’ Connor is one of the replacements.
