Ireland name team to play England

Ireland name team to play England”

Ireland head-coach Andy Farrell says his back-row forwards have earned the chance to start against England at Twickenham in the Guinness Six Nations this Sunday.

The Irish beat Scotland and Wales both at home but travel to Twickenham having lost to England on their last two meetings, a rare home reverse in last year's Six Nations and then a 57-15 whipping before the World Cup.

Caelan Doris, who had an unfortunate first cap against Scotland when he was knocked unconscious after four minutes, returns to the bench after completing return to play protocols.

Doris, who was forced off with a head knock in the opening minutes of his worldwide debut against the Scots on February 1, is named among the replacements in place of Max Deegan after missing the bonus-point win over Wayne Pivac's Wales.

Bath's Beno Obano has been drafted into Eddie Jones' 33-man training squad as cover.

Robbie Henshaw has overcome a head injury suffered against Wales to renew his centre partnership with Bundee Aki, while captain Johnny Sexton continues at fly-half alongside scrum-half Conor Murray.

Full-back is an all-island affair with Leinster's Jordan Larmour, Munster's Andrew Conway and Ulster's Jacob Stockdale retaining their places.

Jordan Larmour, Andrew Conway, Robbie Henshaw, Bundee Aki, Jacob Stockdale, Johnny Sexton (captain), Conor Murray; Cian Healy, Rob Herring, Tadhg Furlong, Iain Henderson, James Ryan, Peter O'Mahony, Josh van der Flier, CJ Stander.
