Breaking: Ireland Team Named For Six Nations Clash With Italy

Joe Schmidt has named his Ireland team for their Six Nations clash with Italy on Saturday.

The Irish will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing opening round defeat to Scotland, knowing that a try bonus win against the Azzurri must be a priority if they are to still challenge for the Six Nations crown.

As expected Schmidt hasn’t shuffled his pack too much, with the majority of the side that started against Scotland retaining their spots in the starting fifteen.

Cian Healy starts in place of Jack McGrath while Donnacha Ryan also comes in.
