Wallace, Flannery In Ireland Starting XV

David Wallace returns to the Ireland starting line-up for the first time since the Japan tour (June 2005) while Jerry Flannery will make his RBS 6 Nations debut on Saturday in an Ireland side that contains 8 Munster players.

Wallace played against Japan in June 2005, a year after making his last previous appearance against South Africa in Newlands during Ireland’s summer tour.

Flannery made his international debut as a replacement against Romania in November when he came on as a replacement for Shane Byrne but his performances for Munster since then helps him see off the challenge of Rory Best for the number 2 shirt.

Ireland: G Murphy; S Horgan, B O’Driscoll capt, G D’Arcy, T Bowe, R O’Gara, P Stringer; M Horan, J Flannery, J Hayes; M O’Kelly, P O’Connell, S Easterby, D Wallace, D Leamy.

Replacements: S Best, R Best, D O’Callaghan, J O’Connor, E Reddan, D Humphreys, A Trimble.
