The Ireland U20 side and women's team have made six changes between them as they prepare to host Italy this weekend.

Noel McNamara's youngsters went down 34-24 away to France last Friday night, but showed a brilliant fighting spirit to bounce back from an early 22-3 deficit.

McNamara has made four changes to his starting team, with flankers Sean Masterson and Matthew Agnew coming into the back row, while scrum-half Hugh O'Sullivan and centre Angus Curtis are selected in the backline.

Meanwhile, Ireland women's head coach Adam Griggs has made two changes to his team to face Italy this weekend after going down 24-0 to France last Sunday.

Katie Fitzhenry comes into the centre to partner Sene Naoupu while Paula Fitzpatrick comes in off the substitutes bench to start at second row.

The Ireland women's team take on Italy at 1pm on Sunday at Donnybrook stadium, while the U20 side take on the Italians on Friday at 7.15pm, also at Donnybrook stadium.
