Ireland make one change for Scotland clash

O'Donnell returns for Van der Flier

Joe Schmidt has made one change to the side that beat Italy last weekend for Saturday's RBS Six Nations finale against Scotland, with Tommy O’Donnell starting in place of Josh van der Flier.

The Munster flanker returns to the starting line-up, while Van der Flier drops out of the matchday squad.

Skipper Rory Best has recovered from a minor calf injury and will make his 32nd consecutive Six Nations appearance.

Richardt Strauss, Cian Healy and Eoin Reddan are all named on the bench after missing out last weekend.

Schmidt will be keen to finish the tournament on a high following defeat to France and England and a draw against wales which saw Ireland relinquish the RBS Six Nations title which they had held for the past two years.

Ireland: Simon Zebo, Andrew Trimble, Jared Payne, Robbie Henshaw, Keith Earls, Johnny Sexton, Conor Murray; Jack McGrath, Rory Best (capt), Mike Ross, Donnacha Ryan, Devin Toner, CJ Stander, Tommy O’Donnell, Jamie Heaslip.

Replacements: Richardt Strauss, Cian Healy, Nathan White, Ultan Dillane, Rhys Ruddock, Eoin Reddan, Ian Madigan, Fergus McFadden.
