Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt has named his Ireland team to face Italy in Rome on Saturday.
The starting XV features two changes from the side which lined out against Scotland at Murrayfield last weekend.
Cian Healy comes into the front row to replace his Leinster teammate Jack McGrath.
In the second row, Donnacha Ryan rekindles his fruitful November partnership with Devin Toner. The Munster man was suffering from a medial ligament injury last week but is once again fit and takes the place of Iain Henderson. Henderson drops out of the matchday 23 due to a minor hamstring strain with Ultan Dillane retaining his place on the bench.
Andrew Trimble was close to being fit but Schmidt did not want to risk winger suffering a setback.
With Johnny Sexton still injured, Paddy Jackson retains his place at out-half.
