Rob Kearney will return at full-back for Ireland's Six Nations trip to Scotland, with Chris Farrell parachuted into the centres.

As expected, Quinn Roux starts in place of Devin Toner who has an ankle injury, Sean O'Brien gets the nod with Josh Van der Flier moved onto the bench and Jack Conan wears the number eight shirt, with CJ Stander also out of action.

Ahead of tomorrow's 2.15pm kick-off in BT Murrayfield, we are asking you to select the best combined XV from the two starting line-ups in the poll below. "We could be struck with a similar circumstance to what we had four years ago", Ireland coach Joe Schmidt said of the changes, referencing the 2015 World Cup when his side did not have the depth to cope with a string of frontline absentees.

'Robbie has a dead leg and just hasn't recovered in time, ' said Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt. This was, after all, Cooney's first taste of Six Nations rugby, and he was only on the... It's a knock on top of a knock.

"It does make it hard; the problem is he maybe could have played".

"Once Garry Ringrose was ruled out, it was going to be trying to keep a little continuity as best we can and get as cohesive as we can in a short space of time".

"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".
