Erin King moves across the back row to No 8 with Hannah Foxe and Aoife Wafer partnering her at the rear of the scrum.

Rachel Murtagh is the sole survivor in the front five and is joined in the front row by Emily Slater and Megan Collis.

Holly Leach and Dara Yore have been selected in the second row.

Kathryns Dempsey and Ciara Faulkner are the midfield partnership while Ella Roberts slots in at full-back.

Laura Carty and Caoimhe O’Callaghan will are on the wings.

The game kicks off on pitch two at St Mary’s College RFC (KO 2.45pm) on Saturday, 14 September.
