Ireland boss Tom Tierney makes two changes for Australia rematch in Belfast
Louise Galvin and Ciara Cooney have been brought into the starting XV for Ireland's 5th Place Semi-Final clash against Australia in Belfast (tomorrow, kick-off 2pm).
Ireland battled from behind to narrowly beat the Aussies 19-17 in the pool stages and another close encounter is expected.
After last Thursday's comprehensive defeat to the French, Sophie Spence has dropped to the bench and is replaced by Cooney while winger Eimear Considine drops out of the matchday 23.
Tierney has named Lindsay Peat, Cliodhna Moloney and Ailis Egan in the front row.
The second-row is comprised of Ciara Cooney and Marie-Louise Reilly, and the back-row sees Ciara Griffin at 6, Paula Fitzpatrick at Number 8 and Captain Claire Molloy at 7.
Nicole Cronin partners out-half Nora Stapleton at half-back, with Sene Naoupu and Jenny Murphy forming the centre partnership.
Alison Miller and Louise Galvin line out on the wings, with Hannah Tyrrell at full-back.
On the selection, Tierney said: "Since arriving in Belfast on Friday the squad have had some down time and settled well into the city and training has been very positive.
"We know what the Australians will bring to the game tomorrow, and we will have to be ready to match their physicality from the start.
"We've reviewed our own games and looked at areas where we can improve in both attack and defence.
"There is huge pride in this team and we're looking to finish this tournament with two performances.”
