Rob Kearney will start at fullback in one of three changes to Ireland’s lineup for Saturday’s match against Wales in Cardiff.
Kearney had to pull out of their game against France at the last minute and was replaced by Jordan Larmour, who now drops to the bench.
There are a couple of changes to the forwards as lock Tadhg Beirne makes his Six Nations debut in place of the injured Iain Henderson.
Sean O’Brien returns to the back row in place of Josh van der Flier, who limped off early in the win over Les Bleus.
Coach Joe Schmidt has also made changes to the bench, with Andrew Porter, Quinn Roux and Kieran Marmion all coming in.
