Donegal girls Larissa Muldoon and Nora Stapleton are back in action with the Irish Ladies Rugby team this Friday night when they taken on France at Ashbourne RFC at 7 p.m.

Nora Stapleton started on the wing in the 26-5 win over Italy on Sunday last and Larissa made her debut coming on as a sub at scrum half.

The Donegal duo ended up in the pivotal roles of scrum half and outhalf as Stapleton was moved there during the game.

Friday night's game in the Six Nations will be a tougher test for the Irish Ladies but all of Donegal will be cheering them on. Muldoon, a student at Cardiff University, is only 19 years of age and took up the game recently. Her elevation to international status underlines her meteoric rise in a very short time.
