Ireland Women's Head Coach Philip Doyle has made three changes for Friday's final Six Nations game against France. Jenny Murphy, Larissa Muldoon and Ailis Egan all return to the starting line up in place of Grace Davitt, Amy Davis and Stacey-Lea Kennedy respectively. Egan comes in at loose-head with Gillian Bourke swapping back into hooker. France are unbeaten to date and have an unassailable points difference of +137 but Ireland can deny them the grand slam with a victory in the Stade de Hameau in Pau on Friday night.
