Written 2 weeks ago by Midlands Sport


Leinster veterans Rob Kearney and Sean O’Brien are set to be recalled to the Irish Rugby team for Saturday’s Six Nations match against Scotland at Murrayfield.

Coach Joe Schmidt is due to unveil his starting 15 this afternoon.

Reports claim Kearney will return at full back, with Robbie Henshaw moving back to the centre to replace the injured Garry Ringrose.

Quinn Roux and Jack Conan are tipped to come in for Devin Toner and C-J Stander, who have both ruled out.

O’Brien looks set to take the place of Josh van der Flier on the flank.

Scotland coach Gregor Townsend is also expected to name his team today.

Key tight head prop WP Nel will miss the game due to a calf injury and looks set to be replaced by Edinburgh’s Simon Bergham.
