Ireland reshuffles pack

Saturday, February 10, 2018

DUBLIN - Ireland coach Joe Schmidt made four changes to his pack to face Italy tomorrow, bringing in a mix of youth and experience that includes handing Leinster number eight Jack Conan a Six Nations debut.

The 25-year-old Conan, who has scored four tries in five Tests for his country so far, allows CJ Stander a break at the back of the scrum where he will be joined by Dan Leavy, who replaces his injured Leinster team mate Josh van der Flier.

Elsewhere in the pack, Jack McGrath swaps places with Cian Healy at loosehead prop while Devin Toner will collect his 55th cap as he returns in place of James Ryan following the 21-year-old's own impressive championship debut in last weekend's last gasp win in France.
