Head coach Joe Schmidt has named his Ireland team for Saturday’s clash with Conor O’Shea’s Italy at Soldier Field in Chicago.
Joey Carbery starts at ten and will be joined by Luke McGrath in the halfbacks, while Jordan Larmour is handed a start at his preferred position of fullback.
Andrew Conway and Jacob Stockdale are on the wings, with Bundee Aki and Garry Ringrose partnering up in midfield.
In the pack Tadhg Beirne starts in the second-row, while Rhys Ruddock captains the side from six. And Will Addison and Ross Byrne look set to make their debuts after being named on the bench.
