Three Changes As Ireland Team To Face Scotland In Six Nations Named

Three Changes As Ireland Team To Face Scotland In Six Nations Named
By PJ Browne Updated

Andy Farrell has named his Ireland team for the final round of the Six Nations against Scotland on Saturday.

It featured three changes from the side which started the defeat of England last weekend.

On the wing, Mack Hansen take the place of Andrew Conway who has a knee injury. In the back row, Jack Conan comes in at number eight with Caelan Doris switching to blindside flanker as Peter O'Mahony drops to the bench.

The final change sees Iain Henderson comes into the second row to replace James Ryan who misses out due to a head injury suffered during a clash with England's Charlie Ewels.

Scotland have also named their team for the game. Out-half Finn Russell been benched with Blair Kinghorn starting in his place.

Ireland go into the game against Scotland still holding a chance of winning the Six Nations Championship. Though, they require England to do them a favour and defeat a Grand Slam-chasing France team in Paris.

Ireland play Scotland at 4:45pm on Saturday evening. The game is live on Virgin Media One, and is followed at 8pm by the meeting of France and England, which is live on RTÉ2.
