Ireland will be hoping to make it two wins from two when they face Japan in the Women’s Rugby World Cup in Dublin later.

The side opened their campaign with a nervy win over Australia, but are heavy favourites to come out on top this afternoon.

A win gives them a potential pool decider against France next week.

Head coach Tom Tierney has made seven changes from their opening tie, but he says they won’t be taking their opponents lightly.

Kick off at the UCD Bowl is at 5.15.
