Joe Schmidt has named his starting XV for Saturday's test against the All Blacks at Soldier Field in Chicago on Saturday evening.

The All-Blacks, just off the back of destroying all that was put in front of them in the Rugby Championship, go into the game as heavy 23-point handicap favourites with the bookies.

Ireland team vs All Blacks

Rob Kearney, Andrew Trimble, Jared Payne, Robbie Henshaw, Simon Zebo, Johnny Sexton, Conor Murray, Jack McGrath, Rory Best (capt), Tadhg Furlong, Devin Toner, Donnacha Ryan, CJ Stander, Jordi Murphy, Jamie Heaslip


Sean Cronin, Cian Healy, Finlay Bealham, Ultan Dillane, Josh van der Flier, Kieran Marmion, Joey Carbery, Garry Ringrose.


The game kicks off at 8pm Irish time.

The two sides will face each other for a second time in Dublin on November 19th.


Vodafone Ireland have also unveiled a special batch of Irish rugby player emojis for the occasion, which you can see below.
