It's back to Energia Park for Ireland as they look to get their Women's Six Nations campaign back on track against France on Saturday, kick-off 7pm.

A fortnight ago, Adam Griggs side suffered their first ever defeat to Italy as they went down 29-27 in a highly entertaining game in Parma. Before that they easily accounted for Scotland away from home, while England were far too good in the opening contest in Donnybrook.

So, it's very much a mixed bag so far for the Irish, with some good moments.

For Ireland winger Eimear Considine, who was among the try scorers against the Italians, displaying more of those good moments is what it's all about as they look to upset the French this weekend.

Speaking to RTÉ Sport, she said: "I think we have shown glimpses of really good play in all our games.

"The bonus win in Scotland was great and even scoring four tries against Italy was a positive.

"We are looking for more than 20 minutes of good play, more than 40% of good play. We have to up that.

"We have to be more clinical inside the '22' and making sure we do punish the opposition when we get that far up the field."

And while the collective is of the utmost importance in team sport, the Clare-native is only too aware that individual errors are costly.

"You have to take a good look at yourself because if you miss a tackle at this level, more often than not it's a try," she added.

"It's putting your hand up and making sure you don't make that mistake again. There is no point in sugar-coating it.

"Even though we are a collective and your defensive line is very important, individual mistakes will really be punished. You have to acknowledge that and learn from it."

And while the 2021 World Cup is just over two years away, Considine is very much focused on the here and now in terms of the Ireland project.

She said: "People are speaking about building. I think we have built. We are there. We know what we have and we know what we are doing in training. We have to put a performance out there for everyone else to see. It just has to happen."
