Joe Schmidt Makes Significant Changes To Ireland Team To Play England On Saturday
By PJ Browne Updated

Joe Schmidt has named his Ireland team to play England in the Six Nations on Saturday.

England travel to Dublin with hopes of winning their second consecutive Grand Slam.

The team features three changes from the side which lost to Wales last weekend.

Due to injury both Conor Murray and Rob Kearney were unavailable for selection. They are replaced by Kieran Marmion and Jared Payne, respectively, in the starting lineup.

The other change sees Iain Henderson replace Devin Toner in the second row.

On the bench, Luke McGrath comes in as the backup scrum-half while Andrew Conway could make his Ireland debut. The Munster back replaces Tommy Bowe, who sustained a leg injury against Wales last weekend, in the matchday squad.
