Ireland host Scotland on the final weekend of the Women’s Six Nations

Ireland and Scotland will conclude the 2022 Women’s Six Nations with the final clash of “Super Saturday”.

The visitors are without a win so far in this year’s competition, falling short against Italy last weekend and needing a victory to climb off the foot of the table.

Greg McWilliams’ Irish side produced an impressive first half against England before the might of the defending champions told, but must again contend with being without much of their first-choice backline due to their involvement in sevens.

Centre Sene Naoupu has been cleared to play after her red card last weekend was downgraded to a yellow by an independent judicial committee.

Here’s everything you need to know:

Team News

There are three changes to the Irish starting XV from the side that began against England. Ulster-born Vicky Irwin is handed a debut at full-back, with last week’s first-capper Molly Scuffil-McCabe moved to the wing. Nicole Cronin is injured, which affords a Nikki Caughey her first appearance of the tournament. Sam Monaghan is fit to return in the second row in an otherwise unchanged pack, backed up by six forwards among the replacements.

Line-ups

Ireland: Irwin; Doyle, Naoupu, Breen, Scuffil-McCabe; Caughey, Dane; Djougang, Jones, Haney, Fryday (capt), Monaghan, Wall, McMahon, O’Connor.

Replacements: Hooban, Pearse, O’Dwyer, McDermott, Moore, Og O’Leary, Hughes, Claffey.

Prediction

It’s an incredibly tough fixture to call. The pair’s meeting in World Cup qualifying in Parma in September was decided by just two points, and a similarly close encounter appears likely - with Scotland perhaps again just emerging on top. Ireland 23-25 Scotland
