Ireland have now responded to England with the team they will use in Saturday’s game at the Aviva.

The Irish have said that their main goal isn’t to knock England off their winning run but to play quality Rugby. Ireland have had better Six nations competitions in the past, but they will look to end the tournament on a high with a victory this weekend.

Both teams will have to turn up on top form if they want to get past each other, especially this Ireland team as England are determined to break the games unbeaten record set by the All Blacks and matched by themselves last weekend with a win over Scotland.


Starting XV:

1 Jack McGrath, 2 Rory Best (CAPTAIN), 3 Tadhg Furlong, 4 Donnacha Ryan, 5 Iain Henderson, 6 CJ Stander, 7 Sean O’Brien, 8 Jamie Heaslip, 9 Kieron Marmion, 10 Jonathan Sexton, 11 Simon Zebo, 12 Robbie Henshaw, 13 Garry Ringrose, 14 Keith Earls, 15 Jared Payne


16 Niall Scannell, 17 Cian Healy, 18 John Ryan, 19 Devin Toner, 20 Peter O’Mahony, 21 Luke McGrath, 22 Paddy Jackson, 23 Andrew Conway
