France have already won the 6 Nations Championship but Ireland can prevent them taking a Grand Slam as well.“The team put in a fine performance against Italy in their first ever game at the Aviva Stadium but we are under no illusions as to the challenge ahead of us,” said head coach Philip Doyle.“France are the form team of the Championship and beat England reasonably comfortably in Round 1. We will need to match their physicality and take our chances when they come.”Ireland team v France  RBS 6 Nations Championship Niamh Briggs (UL Bohemians/Munster), Ashleigh Baxter (Belfast Harlequins/Ulster), Jenny Murphy (Old Belvedere/Leinster), Alison Miller (Portlaoise RFC/UCC/Connacht), Nora Stapleton (Old Belvedere/Leinster), Larissa Muldoon (Bristol/Exiles); Fiona Coghlan (UL Bohemians/Leinster), Gillian Bourke (UL Bohemians/Munster), Ailis Egan (Old Belvedere/Leinster), Sophie Spence (Old Belvedere/Leinster), Marie –Louise Reilly (Old Belvedere/Leinster), Siobhan Fleming (Tralee/Munster), Claire Molloy (Bristol/Connacht) DONEGAL DUO IN IRISH LINE-UP FOR 6 NATIONS CLASH WITH FRANCE was last modified: March 12th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:6 nationsfranceIrelandLarissa MuldoonNora Stapletonlast_img
