Robbie Henshaw will be looking to back up his superb performance from last weekend.
Billy Burns will start for Ireland against France on Sunday, he will be partnered at half-back by Jamieson Gibson Park.
Neither Jonathan Sexton nor Conor Murray are in the in the matchday squad, with Murray picking up a hamstring strain and Sexton missing some markers in his return to play protocols.
Iain Henderson will captain the side for the first time, from the second row alongside Tadhg Beirne, with James Ryan not fit to play.
As expected, Rhys Ruddock starts in the back row in place of the suspended Peter O'Mahony, his first cap since the World Cup in 2019.
While Ultan Dillane, Ed Byrne, Ross Byrne and Craig Casey come into the match day 23 on the bench.
