Joe Schmidt has kept faith with the majority of the team that put Italy to the sword in the final Six Nations game this weekend. Rory Best came through training today to keep his place in the side that sees just one change from last week's XV.
Josh van der Flier is the player dropped, perhaps harshly - or at least equally as harshly as Tommy O'Donnell was dropped for the Leinster flanker. van der Flier was brilliant against Italy, but it's O'Donnell's chance to shine now. Schmidt says that van der Flier is being rested after taking a number of knocks in the tournament to date.
Scotland have made three changes to their team that beat France, with injuries forcing Finn Russell and Jonny Gray out with Duncan Weir and Tim Swinson coming in. The final change for the Scots sees Ryan Wilson beat Josh Strauss to the XV, with the South African born back row dropping to the bench.
