Ireland: Rob Kearney, Keith Earls, Chris Farrell, Bundee Aki, Jacob Stockdale, Jonathan Sexton, Conor Murray; Cian Healy, Rory Best (captain), Tadhg Furlong, James Ryan, Quinn Roux, Peter O'Mahony, Sean O'Brien, Jack Conan.

Potent Munster midfielder Farrell has struggled with a series of knee injuries since his last Test appearance, a man of the match showing in Ireland's 37-27 Six Nations victory over Wales in February 2018.

'You've got Chris Farrell sitting in the wings, massively motivated to do his best, ' said Schmidt. It is easy to identify any reservations that Joe Schmidt, the Ireland head coach, may have had about the player. "It probably took us until today to really get a spring back in our step and really get hungry because we can't pass up a second opportunity". Joe Schmidt said. "It's a pretty exciting opportunity to give Chris Farrell the chance to play against Scotland".

This is Schmidt's last Six Nations in charge of Ireland before he stands down after this year's World Cup in Japan. "He stepped in once past year and got man of the match and he's a guy who's getting back to form after the long lay-off he had".
