Munster player to make Six Nations debut for Ireland against Wales

O'Brien back for Ireland as Beirne makes Six Nations bow

Ahead of a decisive Six Nations showdown with Wales in Cardiff, Joe Schmidt has announced the Ireland team that will contest the New Zealander's final game in the competition.

Flanker Sean O'Brien comes in at openside joining Peter O'Mahony and CJ Stander in the back row while Tadhg Beirne has been given the opportunity to show what he can do on the brightest stage at the Principality Stadium as he partners James Ryan in the second-row.

Rob Kearney is fit to start, however, having withdrawn late on last week as Jordan Larmour started in his place.

Jones said on Thursday that Wales were "starting to look a bit tired" after making "more tackles than anyone else in the tournament", and were facing an Ireland side "that seems to be peaking at the right time". If it was me I'd be concentrating on playing Scotland.

"That's been a really positive challenge for us throughout the Six Nations, to still try to get some cohesion". He will know his fellow Scarlets teammates very well.




Jordan Larmour, who gave an impressive performance after standing in for Kearney against France, is on the replacements bench which also sees the return to the squad of scrum-half Kieran Marmion. "And I know he's incredibly motivated to be as ready as he can be".

Rob Kearney will start at fullback in one of three changes to Ireland's lineup for Saturday's match against Wales in Cardiff.

The availability of Liam Williams is a major boost to their Grand Slam hopes.

Wales are aiming to win their third Grand Slam under Gatland in what will be his 50th match in charge.

Niall Scannell and Dave Kilcoyne have been named among the replacements.
