Ryan, Stander, Murray & Zebo To Face All Blacks

Munster’s Donnacha Ryan, CJ Stander, Conor Murray and Simon Zebo will all start for Ireland when they face world champions New Zealand at Soldier Field, Chicago this Saturday at 8pm Irish time.

Rory Best captain's the side and is joined in the front row by Tadhg Furlong and Jack McGrath. Devin Toner and Ryan are paired in the engine room with Jordi Murphy and Stander on the flanks either side of vice-captain Jamie Heaslip.

Murray starts at scrum-half with Johnny Sexton returning to the No.10 jersey having missed the South African tour due to injury. Robbie Henshaw and Jared Payne are re-united in midfield while Andrew Trimble and Zebo fill the wing positions with Rob Kearney at fullback.

Sean Cronin, Cian Healy, Finlay Bealham, Ultan Dillane, Josh van der Flier, Kieran Marmion, Joey Carbery and Garry Ringrose are named among the replacements.
