Ireland head into tonight's Women's World Cup game knowing defeat to France at the UCD Bowl in Dublin, will see the hosts eliminated from the competition.
The Irish side has made six changes to the XV which beat Japan.
Jenny Murphy and Eimear Considine step into the backline at the expense of Katie Fitzhenry and Mairead Coyne.
Ailis Egan, Marie Louise O'Reilly, Leah Lyons and Paula Fitzpatrick join the pack.
Captain Claire Molloy and Loosehead Prop Lindsay Peat will make their third successive starts in the competition.
A win for Ireland would set up a semi-final match at Kingspan Stadium.

Head Coach Tom Tierney says he knows what's at stake.
Speaking to the official IRFU website he said: "We've had lots of tough games against France over the years and we know [this match] is going to be no different. They have looked really good in their opening two games of the tournament and they'll be coming into this game full of confidence."
Tierney continued: "It's a cup final tomorrow night (Thursday), with a place in the semi-finals up for grabs, so we want the players to go out there and give it everything."
It won't be easy, but with the crowd behind them, they have the ability to claim a place in the final four."
