Ireland v Wales: Six Nations 2020 – live! | Sport


Andy Farrell makes two changes for Ireland. Peter O’Mahony comes into the back row in place of Caelan Doris, who was concussed on debut last week. O’Mahony plays No 6 with CJ Stander at No 8. Robbie Henshaw comes into the centres in place of the injured Garry Ringrose.

Ireland: Jordan Larmour; Andrew Conway, Robbie Henshaw, Bundee Aki, Jacob Stockdale; Johnny Sexton (captain), Conor Murray; Cian Healy, Rob Herring, Tadhg Furlong, Iain Henderson, James Ryan, Peter O’Mahony, Josh van der Flier, CJ Stander.

Replacements: Ronan Kelleher, Dave Kilcoyne, Andrew Porter, Devin Toner, Max Deegan, John Cooney, Ross Byrne, Keith Earls.

Nick Tompkins came off the bench for Wales against Italy – and impressed enough to force his way into Wayne Pivac’s starting XV today. That means George North is back on the wing, having started at centre last week, while Johnny McNicholl is on the bench.

Wales: Leigh Halfpenny; George North, Nick Tompkins, Hadleigh Parkes, Josh Adams; Dan Biggar, Tomos Williams; Wyn Jones, Ken Owens, Dillon Lewis, Jake Ball, Alun Wyn Jones, Aaron Wainwright, Justin Tipuric, Taulupe Faletau.

Replacements: Ryan Elias, Rhys Carre, Leon Brown, Adam Beard, Ross Moriarty, Gareth Davies, Owen Williams, Johnny McNicholl.
