Larissa Muldoon from Cappry has returned to the Irish Women’s squad for Sunday’s Women’s Six Nations game against France on Sunday.

Muldoon has been injured and missed the games against Italy and Scotland, but is back in the frame for Sunday’s game at Donnybrook, having been named among the substitutes.

Fahan woman Nora Stapleton has retained the number 10 jersey.

Ireland coach Tom Tierney said: “We made things hard for ourselves at times in Italy, especially in the first half where we weren’t as accurate as we needed to be. However in the second half we improved and to claim the bonus point with the last play of the game was very pleasing.

“We now head into a tough test on Sunday against the French. They recovered well from their defeat to England on the opening weekend to show why they are defending champions as they beat Scotland well.

“We’ve got a couple of players getting their first Six Nations starts of this season, and we’re looking to continue to give players more game-time as we continue to develop depth in the squad ahead of the Women’s Rugby World Cup in August.”
