Joe Schmidt Set To Ring The Changes Ahead Of Second Wallabies Test


Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt looks set to ring the changes ahead of Saturday’s second Test with the Wallabies at AAMI Park in Melbourne.

The men in green fell to an 18-9 loss on Saturday, their first loss in 12 games following an incredible season, but will look to bounce straight back and keep the series alive the weekend.

Johnny Sexton, Dan Leavy, Tadhg Furlong, Cian Healy, Sean Cronin and Garry Ringrose are all expected to come straight into the starting line-up. There could also be a spot in the matchday squad for the uncapped Tadhg Beirne.

Keith Earls is currently following return to play protocols after suffering a concussion on Saturday, leaving him as a doubt for the fixture. Jordan Larmour and Andrew Conway will be on standby.
