Injury-ravaged Ireland have brought in Dave Foley, Jordi Murphy and Craig Gilroy for the injured trio of Mike McCarthy, Sean O’Brien and Dave Kearney.

Cian Healy and Mike Ross return to the squad after proving their fitness. Tadgh Furlong and Rob Herring are both suffering with thigh muscle injuries so will remain with their provinces to rehab.
