Farrell Makes 9 Changes To Ireland Team To Face Georgia.

: 26/11/2020 - 12:59

Irish rugby head coach Andy Farrell has made nine changes to the team that started the Autumn Nations Cup defeat to England last week.

Ireland play Georgia at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday.

Five changes in the pack with prop Finlay Bealham and hooker Rob Herring replacing Cian Healy and Ronan Kelleher.

Iain Henderson starts in the second row in place of Quinn Roux while Tadhg Beirne and Will Connors are the starting flankers with Peter O'Mahony and Caelan Doris left out.

Hugo Keenan moves to the wing instead of James Lowe so there's a start at full back for Jacob Stockdale and Stuart McCloskey comes in at centre instead of Bundee Aki.

It's a new starting half-back line of Conor Murray and Billy Burns who replace Jamison Gibson-Park and Ross Byrne.

The uncapped Shane Daly of Munster is included in the match day 23.
