Ireland head coach Adam Griggs has named an unchanged starting 15 for tomorrow's Women's Rugby World Cup qualifier against Scotland in Parma.

There's one enforced switch on the bench with Lucy Mulhall coming in for the injured Enya Breen.

Ireland, hosts Italy, Spain and Scotland are all locked on five points in the standings heading into the final round of fixtures at the qualifier tournament.

The team that finishes top tomorrow evening will book their passage to next year's finals in New Zealand.

"It has been another good week of preparation, and the group have maintained that laser-focus on the task ahead. We're under no illusions of the challenge facing us but also the prize on offer, and have not shied away from embracing the pressure Saturday will inevitably bring," Griggs said of their preparations.

"We have received huge support from home throughout this tournament and are looking forward to having more green in Parma on Saturday. Hopefully, we can deliver the result we're all striving to achieve."
