There is just one change to the Ireland Women's team for the Six Nations clash away to Wales this Sunday.

Katie Fitzhenry is out of the game due to an ankle injury picked up in training.

Jackie Sheils comes into the side instead.

She starts in the centre, while Aoife Doyle is on the bench.

Head Coach, Tom Tierney said, "It was great to get a win against England a fortnight ago, and has left us in a good position for the final two rounds of the championship, but we are always looking for improvements.”

 "We are not underestimating Wales, they are a strong side and we have no doubt they will bring their all with them for the home crowd. If we do the small things right we will be in good shape.”

The Girls in Green can still win the Championship.

They are in third place, just 2 points off leaders France.

The game takes place on Sunday 15th March, with kick-off at midday:
