The Ireland Women's team to play Kazakhstan in their third and final pool game of the IRB Women's Rugby World Cup has been named.
Head coach Philip Doyle has made 10 personnel changes and two positional switches to the team that overcame reigning world champions New Zealand 17-14 in their last outing.
A new look back-line sees full-back Jackie Shiels and wingers Vikki McGinn and Hannah Casey make their first starts of the tournament.
Grace Davitt and Lynne Cantwell(whose boots are pictured below) continue their centre partnership with Cantwell, Ireland's most-capped player, captaining the side in Fiona Coghlan's absence.
The versatile Tania Rosser, fresh from winning her 50th Ireland cap, moves to out-half with Larissa Muldoon coming in at scrum half.
Hooker Gillian Bourke - one of only two survivors in the pack - is joined by Fiona Hayes and Kerrie-Ann Craddock in the front row.
Orla Fitzsimons(pictured below), who also makes her first appearance of the tournament, will link up with Laura Guest in the second row.
Paula Fitzpatrick shifts from blindside flanker to number 8, while Sharon Lynch and the returning Siobhan Fleming complete the back row.
Coghlan, Ailis Egan, Sophie Spence, Claire Molloy, Nora Stapleton, Alison Miller and Ashleigh Baxter are all named among the replacements.
Speaking ahead of the third round tie, Doyle said: "Tuesday's win against New Zealand was fantastic and really showed what this team can do. However, it was one game and we still have a lot of rugby to play.
"This World Cup is - and always has been - about our 26-player squad, and we are in a great position that we can use fresh players to maintain our standards and performances to date.
"Kazakhstan are a hugely physical side and we are not underestimating them. They will not be overcome easily."
Saturday's Pool B game, which kicks off at 12pm Irish time, will be televised live on TG4 and Sky Sports 3 HD.
