Nora Stapleton has retained her place in the Irish Women’s side for Saturday’s Six Nations clash with Wales.

Ireland have won three-from-three as they head to Cardiff to face the Welsh at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park (11.30am).

Fahan woman Stapleton has been named at out-half again for the game by Head Coach Tom Tierney, while Cappry’s Larissa Muldoon is again among the replacements.

The Irish team shows three personnel changes to the side that overcame France 13-10.

Wingers Alison Miller and Hannah Tyrrell return to the back-line having been involved with the Ireland Women’s Sevens squad for the Las Vegas leg of the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series.

Claire McLaughlin, who sustained an ankle injury in training, misses out and her place at inside centre will be filled by Sene Naoupu, who is also back from a stint at the USA 7s.

Speaking ahead of the trip to the Welsh capital, Tierney said: “The squad has been developing nicely over the course of the Championship, and while it was great to get the win against France in the last game, we haven’t dwelt on that and have firmly turned our attention to the challenge the Welsh will give us.

“We are expecting Wales to be very much up for this game and there is set to be a big crowd in the Cardiff Arms Park on Saturday. With that in mind, it will be important that the players stay fully focused on their jobs and that we go out on Saturday ready to perform.

“We’d also encourage any Ireland fans that are in town for the men’s game on Friday evening and are still in Cardiff on Saturday to come to the game and give the team their support.”
