Ireland team to face Scotland in the Six Nations

Parks kicks the winning penalty in the 2010 Six Nations game at Croke Park

Blair Kinghorn will make his first start for Scotland on Saturday after being named in Gregor Townsend's side for their pivotal Six Nations clash against Ireland in Dublin.

Ireland team v Scotland: Rob Kearney; Keith Earls, Garry Ringrose, Bundee Aki, Jacob Stockdale; Johnny Sexton, Conor Murray; Cian Healy, Rory Best (captain), Tadhg Furlong; James Ryan, Devin Toner; Peter O'Mahony, Dan Leavy, CJ Stander.

When Ryan picked up a groin strain against France, Toner came in alongside Henderson against Italy and then took the place of the Ulster man against Wales when he was ruled out.

Porter can consider himself unfortunate to drop out of the team after his performances against Wales but Furlong's availability is a major fillip for Ireland, and, as we've seen previously, his Leinster team-mate can provide a bring power and physicality off the bench at a later stage. "It was probably just a case of trying to keep some continuity into this game against Scotland". "It also adds a bit of our last 20 or 30 minutes of the game, where an athlete like Iain can come on".

Making Sense Of A Busy Primary Election Night
Pollster Scott Rasmussen summed up the fluid nature of the current political climate in an article published on Thursday. Texas hasn't sent a new congresswoman of any ethnicity to Washington in 22 years. "WAKE UP CALL", tweeted Wisconsin Gov.

The 23-year-old centre - who played every minute of last year's Six Nations but who has missed the first three games of this edition as he battled back from injury - will be Bundee Aki's third partner this term after Robbie Henshaw and Chris Farrell suffered injuries. The big, burly Munster centre sustained a knee injury during training recently. Payne has not played since last year's Lions tour to New Zealand, having suffered persistent headaches.

"There's always concerns about players for different reasons, and Garry's only had six games in this entire season", Schmidt said.

'That's something you calculate in but sometimes you don't have the luxury of a plethora of options.

"Garry's been extraordinary when he has played for us". Jordan Larmour is poised to continue his electric rookie season off the bench, replacing Fergus McFadden, and Jordi Murphy's selection means Jack Conan returns to a Leinster side that travels to Llanelli for the rescheduled Pro 14 match.
