Following their abandoned fixture against Wales last weekend, Ireland head coach Philip Doyle has named an unchanged team for the French game, which has been brought forward to 3.30pm Irish time to ensure the match will be played.
“Everyone deserves a second chance,” he said. “France away is always a hard place to go and get a win but the ladies are in a good space at the moment and will take that into the weekend.”
