Preview: Ireland Women v Scotland Women

Scotland Women conclude their 2022 TikTok Women’s Six Nations campaign tomorrow at Kingspan Stadium in Belfast as they take on Ireland (kick-off 8pm) - live on BBC Scotland.

It's set to be an action-packed day, as the 2022 championship will end with a Super Saturday with Wales v Italy, Ireland v Scotland and France v England taking place on the same day.

Scotland Head Coach Bryan Easson has named a settled side, as the visitors go into their last game of the championship with the same starting line-up, led once more by blindside flanker Rachel Malcolm.

Meanwhile, Ireland Head Coach Greg McWilliams has made three changes to the Ireland side for the fifth and final round of the TikTok Women’s Six Nations.

Head Coach preview

Easson said: “We’ve had a very honest review this week so our training sessions have focused on getting the details rights and trying to piece together the positive aspects of our recent performances.

“The decision-making process throughout the TikTok Women’s Six Nations has been around giving as much experience to as many players we can ahead of the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. I’ve been really pleased with some of the performances from the younger players who have made the team selection choices a lot tougher.

“I felt the players performed well in the first half against Italy and this is another chance for that group to put the second-half wrongs to right at the Kingspan Stadium this Saturday.”
