Two changes for Ireland as Schmidt names strong side to face the Scots
Tadhg Furlong is back.
Tadhg Furlong and Garry Ringrose will make their return to the Irish team for the crunch clash with Scotland at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday.
Ringrose returns to the side after a lengthy injury absence and will line up alongside Bundee Aki, with Chris Farrell sidelined after an injury picked up in training following a man-of-the-match display in the victory over Wales.
Furlong has overcome a hamstring problem to take his place in the front row with Cian Healy and Rory Best, with Andrew Porter dropping to the bench after an impressive showing last time out.
He’ll be joined on the bench by the returning Iain Henderson, while Jordan Larmour has been handed the number 23 jersey for Saturday’s encounter, which kicks off at the Aviva Stadium at 2.15pm.
