Ireland take on Italy today in a must-win Rugby World Cup qualifier.
A shock defeat to Spain on Monday has left Adam Griggs’ side with no margin of error if they are to qualify for next year’s tournament.
Even with a win today, Ireland will still need to beat Scotland in the next round and hope results go their way.
But their sole concentration at the moment is an Italian side who thumped Scotland 38-13 last time out.
Griggs has made four changes in personnel to his starting XV from that Round 1 defeat to Spain, with Laura Feely, Sam Monaghan, Edel McMahon and Eve Higgins coming into the side.
The match at the Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi is set to kick off at 2pm (Irish time).
