he big news is that Beibhinn Parsons is back in the first XV, one of six changes to the team. Eimear Considine drops out of the match-day 23 with Lucy Mulhall switching to full-back in a back-three consisting of Parsons and Amee-Leigh Murphy Crowe.

Kathryn Dane, Christy Haney and Hannah O’Connor have all been promoted to the starting line-up as well.

Also on the show, Cliodhna addresses her disappointment at being left out of the squad, where the team needs to improve as well as the 7s v XV debate.
