Beirne Makes Six Nations Debut - Carty Back On the Bench

Beirne Makes Six Nations Debut - Carty Back On the Bench

Warren Gatland has advised Eddie Jones to "concentrate on the Scotland match" after the England boss claimed Wales were showing signs of fatigue. Josh van der Flier had been withdrawn from the squad earlier this week with a groin injury sustained in last Sunday's game.

They will hope to crown it by beating Wales to deny them the Grand Slam and keep their hopes of a fourth title since Schmidt took over after the 2013 Six Nations tournament alive - that will depend on whether Scotland beat England at Twickenham. They are right wing Keith Earls, scrum-half Conor Murray, flanker Peter O'Mahony and No.8 CJ Stander.

Munster forward Tadhg Beirne will make his Six Nations debut taking the place of injured Iain Henderson while Jack Carty will provide covert to Johnny Sexton from the bench with Joey Carbery sidelined with a hamstring injury.

The front row remains unchanged with Cian Healy and Tadhg Furlong either side of captain Rory Best, who will make his final championship appearance. If it was me I'd be concentrating on playing Scotland. "We've got an opportunity to show that we're the best team in the Six Nations and approaching the best team in the world and we're not going to miss that opportunity".

Miami Dolphins trade Ryan Tannehill to Titans for draft picks
The only two on the depth chart are Luke Falk , a rookie from Washington state; and Jake Rudock , a three-year veteran out of MI . Miami will get a 2020 fourth round pick and a seventh round pick in this year's draft in exchange for Tannehill .

"With that combination I do think he's as ready as we can get him to be at this stage".

Rob Kearney returns at full-back.

'I think Johnny Sexton and Conor Murray have been off the pace a little bit but they look like they've got their mojo back.

Subs: 16 Rory Scannell, 17 Dave Kilcoyne, 18 Andrew Porter, 19 Quinn Roux, 20 Jack Conan, 21 Kieran Marmion, 22 Jack Carty, 23 Jordan Larmour.
