No place for Jack Carty
Athlone's Robbie Henhsaw is back on the Irish team after injury and will take his place in the centre against Samoa on Saturday in the vital clash at the Rugby World Cup.
Joe Schmidt has picked his strongest team for the match with Johnny Sexton and Conor Murray in the half-backs and Jordan Larmour at full-back.
Bundee Aki will partner Henshaw in the centre while Keith Earls and Jacob Stockdale will be on the wings.
Rory Best captains the team from the front row alongside Cian Healy and Tadgh Furlong.
Iain Henderson and James Ryan are in the second row with Josh van Der Fleer, CJ Stander and Tadgh Beirne in the back row.
Joey Carbery is on the bench which means there is no place for Jack Carty in the squad.
