Head coach Joe Schmidt has named his Ireland team for this weekend’s Rugby World Cup pool opener with Scotland in Japan.

Both Rob Kearney and Keith Earls have failed to fully recover in time for the game with Jordan Larmour set to fill in at fullback and Andrew Conway set to start on the right wing.
