Andy Dunne says Joe Schmidt's Ireland are "very one-dimensional"

Andy Dunne says Joe Schmidt's Ireland are

Gregor Townsend and Joe Schmidt have named their respective teams for tomorrow's Guinness Six Nations clash between Scotland and Ireland at BT Murrayfield.

The returning British and Irish Lion Sean O'Brien replaces Josh van der Flier in the back row.

The former flanker added: "The Scottish coaching team and players will be well aware of that so Scotland have got to be ferocious and got to be in the face of Ireland".

"So I'm not sure how they summarise Plan A, because I think we have a very varied game".

In the backline, centre Chris Farrell will make his first Six Nations start, while fullback Rob Kearney replaces Robbie Henshaw, who has fallen out of the match 23.

He may surprise some but he won't surprise me, because I have gotten to know him & fully understand how capable he is. Trump announced the plan for his second meeting with Kim in his annual State of the Union address on Tuesday.


Partnering Bundee Aki in the center of the pitch, will be Munster's Chris Farrell. It does make it hard; the problem is he maybe could have played.

"He just got a dead leg and it hasn't recovered sufficiently so we're just gonna have to forge ahead". "But if you get another bump on it, it debilitates you quickly, and then you have to make another change".

Maitland - who has four Heineken Champions Cup tries from five appearances this season - will form a familiar back three with Glasgow Warriors wing Tommy Seymour and full-back Stuart Hogg, with the trio combining for the 18th time for Scotland.

Asked whether Kearney would've been full-back if Henshaw was fit, Schmidt replied: "Probably once Garry Ringrose was ruled out it was going to be [a case of] trying to keep a little continuity as best we can and get as cohesive as we can in a short space of time".
