Ireland are taking on France in the second round of Women’s Six Nations matches as they aim to bounce back from a disappointing defeat against Wales last time out. The Irish led at half-time but led their control slip away in the latter stages of the game. France meanwhile began their tournament with a hammering of Italy and have made a positive start in their bid to win the Six Nations crown for the seventh time.

France come into the match as heavy favorites with odds of 1/50 to clinch victory at the Stade Ernest-Wallon in Toulouse this afternoon. The game kicks off at 2.15pm UK time with coverage beginning on the BBC iPlayer and Red Button from 1.45pm.

Team News – France

It was all a little scratchy for France for slightly too much of last weekend’s opener against Italy, and Annick Hayraud makes a number of changes as she seeks to remedy that slow-ish start. Laure Sansus starts at scrum-half after a typically impactful cameo, with Pauline Bourdon absent for at least the first few rounds of the tournament after a painful-sounding incident while cooking.

Emilie Boulard is promoted from the bench and joined in a potentially potent back-three by the adventurous Cyrielle Banet and Melissande Llorens, while up front there are starts for young prop Coco Lindelauf, hooker Laure Touye and flanker Axelle Berthoumieu.

Lock Safi N’Diaye was back training after injury this week but is not yet ready to return to the matchday squad.

French: Boulard; Banet, Filopon, Vernier, Llorens; Drouin, Sansus; Lindelauf, Touye, Joyeux; Fall, Forlani; Berthoumieu, Hermet (capt), Menager.

Replacements: Domain, Deshaye, Khalfaoui, Ferer, Annery, Chambon, Tremouliere, Jacquet.

France vs Ireland kicks off Women’s Six Nations Round Two

It’s been a week of all-sorts weather wise, and the reports from Toulouse is that it is just a touch blustery, and slightly nippy. They know how to do it in the Pink City, though, and over 11,000 (largely) French fans are beginning to file in.

Women’s Six Nations Round Two

Welcome back! A new dawn for the Women’s Six Nations began in glorious sunshine on an unseasonably warm late March weekend seven days ago, with three competitive fixtures reflecting six competitive sides. Wales kicked off their own new era with a stirring fightback to beat Ireland, France stuttered and stumbled but eventually found stable footing to survive a creative Italy, while England showed that they remain the team to beat with a comfortable victory over Scotland – though the final scoreline reflected a rather more uneven contest than the one that played out in Edinburgh.

A week later, we are back to do it all over again, with two games this afternoon before proceedings in Parma conclude the Six Nations weekend tomorrow. To begin, Ireland are in Toulouse, for a mighty tough trip to the Stade Ernest-Walllon and a meeting with a much-changed French side who will be looking for a more complete performance. The action all gets underground in little more than an hour…
