Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt has named his side for their clash with the All Blacks in Chicago.
Unfortunately the rumours were not true, with Garry Ringrose having to wait to make his debut from the bench. Rob Kearney will start at fullback with Jared Payne instead partnering Robbie Henshaw in the centre.
In the backrow, Jordi Murphy gets the nod over Josh Van Der Flier and is joined by CJ Stander and Jamie Heaslip. Simon Zebo gets the nod on the wing in place of the banned Keith Earls, with Andrew Trimble on the other wing.
