Ireland team vs Scotland, Six Nations 2019: The starting XV

Ireland team vs Scotland, Six Nations 2019: The starting XV

It is easy to identify any reservations that Joe Schmidt, the Ireland head coach, may have had about the player.

"We play strong off set-piece, we play a varied kicking game, we play with a varied attacking game".

"So I guess I'll leave them to do their analysis, and we'll keep analysing what we're doing, and trying to improve".

The biggest sees Robbie Henshaw pulled with Chris Farrell named at outside centre and Rob Kearney reclaiming the number 15 jersey.

Replacements: Sean Cronin, Dave Kilcoyne, Andrew Porter, Ultan Dillane, Josh van der Flier, John Cooney, Joey Carbery, Jordan Larmour.

Garry Ringrose injured his hamstring in the loss in Dublin, so Farrell and Bundee Aki will make up the center pairing. It's a knock on top of a knock.

Schmidt last week bemoaned his side's habit of starting slowly having failed to win their opening Six Nations game for the third time in four years, and said on Thursday that the bruising defeat had stung for much of the week. "But if you get another bump on it, it debilitates you quickly, and then you have to make another change".

"You've got Chris Farrell sitting in the wings, massively motivated to do his best. It probably took us until today to really get a spring back in our step and really get hungry because we can't pass up a second opportunity". Joe Schmidt said. "It's a pretty exciting opportunity to give Chris Farrell the chance to play against Scotland".

Roux, who came off the bench against England last week to earn his ninth Test cap, replaces the injured Devin Toner.
