Ireland will be hopeful of victory against Spain - a team that the Irish have battled in many close fought encounters over the past few years. Spain were the first team that Ireland ever beat in the Six Nations three years ago. In 2004, Ireland lost by a point on a 8-7 scoreline, and last season in Madrid Ireland lost another close encounter, this time on a 19-17 scoreline. Spain replace Italy in the women's Six Nations.
This year Donnybrook will host two of Ireland s Six Nations matches and the team will hoping that the new venue will help them secure some much needed home wins.
