Earls Returns To Starting XV

Keith Earls returns to the Ireland starting XV in the only change from the side that ran out against Wales last Sunday, the Munster man’s inclusion relegating Fergus McFadden to the bench.

Earls withdrew from the Ireland squad last week because of concerns over the health of his newly born daughter but thankfully all is well in that regard and Earls trained with the squad this week.
