Ireland Name Team To Face Wales On Friday Night

James Fenton

Joe Schmidt has named the 15 men charged with slaying the dragons of Wales in Cardiff on Friday night.

The big news with regards changes to the starting line-up… there are precisely zero changes to the starting line-up. 

Schmidt has kept faith with the same men who dispatched of France a fortnight ago and the only change on the bench sees Tommy Bowe come in for Andrew Trimble. 

The match kicks off at 8.05pm on Friday night and will go a long way to deciding Ireland’s Championship-winning prospects.
