Ireland Name New Look Side For Rugby World Cup Warm-Up Clash With Wales

The road to Japan.

Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt has named his side for this weekend’s Rugby World Cup warm-up clash with Wales at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

Following last Saturday’s disappointing defeat to England in Twickenham, the Ireland boss has made a number of changes to his starting line-up, with Jack Carty, set to make his first start having been named at ten.

Peter O’Mahony captains the side from openside while Jack Conan comes in at eight. James Ryan also starts, as does Dave Kilcoyne and Tadhg Beirne.
