Philip Doyle has named an unchanged Ireland side for the RBS 6 Nations match with France at Ashbourne on Friday evening.

Doyle has selected the team that secured the triple crown against Scotland in the last outing.

He said: "It is great to have our goals already ready reached for this season with Rugby World Cup qualifications and the Triple Crown secured.

"That being said, this squad has further goals and a win over France will certainly get us a step closer to those."

"Having seeing France’s very strong performance a fortnight ago we know that this fixture will be a very tight one but will certainly be very entertaining for the crowd.

"We are looking forward to playing in front of the home crowd in Ashbourne they always give us great support and can really make a difference for the team on the pitch."

The game will be streamed live on rte.ie and RTÉ's 2FM. Kick-off is 7:30pm.

Ireland team: Niamh Briggs, Ashleigh Baxter, Lynne Cantwell, Jenny Murphy, Alison Miller, Nora Stapleton, Larissa Muldoon

Fiona Coghlan (capt), Gillian Bourke, Ailis Egan, Sophie Spence, Marie Louise Reilly, Siobhan Fleming, Claire Molloy, Joy Neville

Replacements: Stacey-Lea Kennedy, Fiona Hayes, Lauren Day, Leigh Dargan, Laura Guest, Amy Davis, Grace Davitt, Niamh Kavanagh
