Alison Miller will start for Ireland in their Six Nations second-round clash with Scotland.

Head coach, Adam Griggs has made three personnel changes to his side, along with Miller, Emma Hooban is named at hooker for her first start of the tournament and Anna Caplice gets the nod in the back row.

In the opening round of the Six Nations Ireland were comprehensively defeated by England.

With Hooban at 2, Leah Lyons moves to tight-head prop and Laura Feely remains at loose-head. 

Anna Caplice starts in the back row alongside Claire Molloy and captain, Ciara Griffin.

Miller, who came on as a sub against England after almost a year out through injury, is named on the wing along with Eimear Considine.

"The game against England last week was undeniably a tough start to the Women's Six Nations and while the final score line was far from ideal, there are positives we will take from that game," said Griggs.

"Our set piece was solid throughout and we were able to challenge England at times during the game.

"We need to build on those positives now and make improvements in other areas of our game to become more consistent and force more pressure on our opponents.

"Scotland will bring new challenges and we know they are also hurting from a loss last weekend.

"They will come out strong in front of their home crowd and will want to start the game with intent. We need to weather that initial pressure and stay focused on our game and what we can bring, which I know the team are looking forward to."
